Small town gets giant chicken

Small town gets giant chicken

In central Georgia there’s a little town called Fitzgerald where the folks are friendly, time moves slowly like blackstrap molasses, and hundreds of wild Burmese chickens roam the streets. It’s the kind of place that could easily win your heart, if only you knew it existed. Mayor Jim Puckett might love Fitzgerald more than any person can, and is determined to put his town and its most famous...

Better person than any of us fashions tiny wheelchair for disabled chicken

Better person than any of us fashions tiny wheelchair for disabled chicken

This holiday season, let us extend our charity beyond humans, beyond mammals. Let us open our hearts to the plight of disabled chickens; let us be vessels of avian compassion; let us use our hands to build them teeny tiny chicken wheelchairs.

Tuesday (that’s her name) is a chicken that was born with a slipped tendon in her leg; while other chickens are able to strut around like the cock of the...

Say what you will, but 1,000 chickens for $0.96 is a great deal

Say what you will, but 1,000 chickens for $0.96 is a great deal

A situation that could have ended as a feathery nightmare instead has a warm and fuzzy ending. The manager of a bed and breakfast in Hamilton, New Zealand, was shocked this week when it turned out his winning bid for “a couple” of chickens in an online auction was in fact for 1,000 chickens, which had been listed for “urgent sale” due to the closure of the free-range egg farm where they...

Eggland’s Best patents its eggs, inspires our deep questions about eggshells

Come for the news about Eggland’s Best eggs, stay for the weird info I’m about to share regarding chickens who eat their own eggshells. (If that’s not a thrilling cliffhanger, I don’t know what is.)

First, the news: Eggland’s Best announced today it received another patent from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for its production methods that yield a “more nutritious shell egg.” If you’re...

A crazy chicken lady explains the egg-inception photo that's all over Twitter

A crazy chicken lady explains the egg-inception photo that's all over Twitter

Multiple friends have shared with me this series of photos—which I’m dubbing Egg-ception—showing an Australian farmer who discovers a somewhat freakish egg-within-an-egg. They’re sharing these photos with me because they know I am a crazy chicken lady, and they know I will be able to explain this bizarre sight without resorting to Google.

Feral chickens besiege South Florida town

Feral chickens besiege South Florida town

The morning cries of a rooster pierce the all-too-brief silence over Pompano Beach, Florida. Sleeping babies awaken; tired residents pull pillows over their heads. It’s been like this for years, with no relief in sight. WPLG Local 10, the ABC affiliate for the Miami and Fort Lauderdale areas, reports that a band of feral chickens has been terrorizing the quiet town of Pompano Beach, and...
