Will a chick raised with puppies feel and behave like a dog?
A chick (hen’s offspring) is born and brought up by a motherly dog along with the puppies. It has never seen any other chick or hen. Just dogs everywhere. Then, will it behave and feel like a dog or does it have chick-traits hardcoded in its brain from the birth?
Like Mowgli in the Jungle Book feels and behaves like wolves and other wild animals. With no knowledge of other humans, Mowgli’s behavior has no traits of ‘human behavior’. He eats, drinks, sleeps, hunts like wild animals. It is later that he comes in touch with other humans and learns their way of living.
