I don't believe so. they have a specific purpose and having a consciousness is not required for survival so I doubt that they have adapted to be self conscious. we are the only animals proven to have a self consciousness. but I am going off my definition of conscious which is being self aware and having the ability to think and have emotion so someone else's answer will be completely different. I am open for debate so feel free.

We, as humans don't know what consciousness really is. We can't really measure it, so we can't really know. You could argue, that we are made up of tons of electrons, which are interacting in all our biological processes.

It is just to know what we're talking about, we can't answer it when we don't even have a definition...
