does this have anything to do with the ex-parrot sketch? That'd be great if it did...

The mark; you said it was not a physical mark, correct?
If so, then was it a conceptual impression left- something that would effect others?
Is this a fairly well known experiment?
Was the experiment conducted in the 1800s? Is the time period relevant because of what was occuring during this era?
What technology was available?
What the people believed in?
Was the bird the main 'ingrediant' in the experiment?
Was the bird a crucial element?
Was the experiment an attempt to create something helpful to other people?
Helpful only to himself/herself?
Helpful at all?
The scientist:
Their age relevant? Any personal information at all? Their location within the uk?

well that shot me down

Did the scientist do anything to the bird post mordum? (sp?) Before he killed it?
Did he or anyone else eat part of the bird?
Was it a chicken? Turkey? Anything like that?
Was anything wrong with the bird before it died? Did he buy the bird for the experiment?
Relevant how he came to have the bird?
Would any other kind of bird have worked for the initial experiment?
Did the bird do anything to the scientist before it died?

was there a particular reason he picked a chicken for the experiment? did you say he killed it himself?
Did he pull it's feathers out, skin it, that traditional thing? Did he have to do anything to the bird in order for the experiment to work? Did it have anything to do with cooking?
Before the 16th century? After? 17th? 18th? 19th?

No-ish to cooking; was it preservation? preparation for cooking? for eating? Something's niggling at the back of my brain but it won't come out where I can see it
