Chicks can be conditioned to avoid yellow LEDs but allowed to peck at silver beads. Chicks later, not having been so conditioned, would also tend to avoid the yellow LEDs and favor the silver beads.
Rats, poisoned, seem to add to the “morphic resonance field” such that subsequent rats, not yet poisoned, also somehow “know” to avoid the same poisons (i.e., bait with some particular flavor) that worked before on other rats. For this reason, warfarin, which causes bleeding and death days later (thus breaking association between poison and death) has become the preferred poison because it works on all rats, even those who have become “bait-shy”. This morphic resonance isn’t local but spans miles and miles area.
Bass fishing lures are also under constant development, presumably for the same reason.
