Recommended Posts

Chickens can't swallow while they are upside down.


The left leg of a chicken in more tender than the right one.


Did you know that the longest recorded chicken flight was by a headless chook?


Or that in earlier times, chimneys were cleaned by shoving a chicken down and letting it flap out the soot?


"But my favourite is that in France in mediæval times one punishment for an adulterous wife was to make her run naked through the streets of the town chasing - you guessed it - a chicken. You’ve got to give the French points for originality. I wonder what the adulterous husband had to do?."


The longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds.


A chicken who just lost its head can run the length of a football field before dropping dead


If I'm being a bore, please tell me and I will stop :oops:
