Not just any chicken, but the Cornish Cross!  I've raised them, we  
call them "genetic mutant freaks."  These are the birds that are so  
freakishly bred that if you don' restrict their food and force them  
to walk, within a few weeks of life their puny legs will no longer be  
able to lift their enormous overdeveloped breasts and they will just  
lay on the ground with their head in the feeder.  Hmmm... sounds  
familiar, maybe we should make this into our National bird, not just  
for Georgia?  We are what we eat, after all.

On topic:  massive invasion of American Robins locally in the last  
week, hundreds on every lawn. Been listening for a Varied Thrush in  
the hoard, but not even a hint yet
