Photographer's Note

I was out shooting today and I came upon this fellow. He didn't seem to want his photo taken, but I pressed him and he finally gave me this look!

A chicken will lay bigger and stronger eggs if you change the lighting in such a way as to make them think a day is 28 hours long!

Chickens can travel up to 9 miles per hour.

There seven distinctive types of combs on chickens: rose, strawberry, single, cushion, buttercup, pea, and V-shaped. This fellow has the strawberry flavor.

There are four places in the United State with the word "chicken" in their name. Chicken, Alaska; Chicken Bristle; in Illinois and Kentucky; and Chicken Town, Pennsylvania. This photo, however, was taken in Utah.

The largest chicken egg on record was nearly 12 oz., measuring 12 1/4" around.

The greatest number of yolks in one chicken egg is nine.

The record for laying the most eggs: seven in one day.

There are more chickens in the world than any other domesticated bird. More than one chicken for every human on the face of this earth.

The longest distance flown by any chicken is 301 1/2 feet. (as the crow flies).

I like chicken in curry sauce.
