This movie got me crowing with the stories and the funny times with chickens and roosters.
Some of the stories made me go " Oh, No! that didn't happens and I laughed and giggled myself silly.
Who knew that chickens can have their own documentary.
I was sad that the numbers and how chickens are used all for our compsumption. This show might make you vegan, so watch out.

It is a bit of a goofy show, and should be called Stories of the Chicken in Modern USA. Be prepared to meet a woman who puts a diaper on her indoor chicken.
