    ‘Chickens can’t fly … I don’t think we’re built for it!’

    “As God is my witness, I could have sworn that turkeys could fly…!”

    only fat chickens don’t fly, thin chickens can fly

    Turkeys can fly quite well.

    Actually, chickens can fly. There was an article some years back in the Old Farmers Almanac about teaching your chicken to fly using a couple of tables (needs to be either squard card tables or rectangular tables like folding tables). You had to start off putting the tables up against each other and put feed on the end of one table and the chicken on the other end. You’d let the chicken walk to the food so it could get used to going from one end to the other to get the food. Then after a few days you moved the tables a couple inches apart, putting a gap between the two the chicken could still walk across. Again go for a few days and then increase the gap another couple inches. Again the chicken can walk across this gap, but it’s gottatake a larger stride. The idea is to get the chicken used to crossing a gap, ever few days as the chicken gets used to the set up you widen the gap so the chicken has to change how it crosses from one table to the next, goes from walking no problem to walking with having to step over a gap, to a longer stride over a gap, to hopping the gap, to jumping the gap, to jumping the gap using flaps to help make the jump, to short distance flying, to being able to fly up to a roof if it so chooses.

    We had a hen in charge of our lab room in High School. She could fly well enough to move from desk to desk.

    In the last panel Booker is still going up. When he reaches 10,000 feet he may decided that this was not such a good idea after all.

    Don’t most domestic fowl have their wings clipped so they can’t fly very far? (I would be glad to hear this isn’t so, because I think the practice is brutal.)
