I'm a big fan of Werner Herzog and his movies. Here is his take on chickens. I found this pretty funny. http://vimeo.com/9880377 Now, gazing into the eyes of a cow and seeing a lack of intelligence I can see, but while I am no fan of chickens either as pets or food, I understand from watching a PBS show that there are people that treat them like house pets.
I think I can agree with him.
