    * How EXACTLY do you get a chicken to "open wide and say 'AAAHHH'" in order to look down it's throat for such things as gapeworms and so forth??? I've never been able to figure it out when I see it asked of people.

    I've never seen gapeworm, but I guess that if they have it they will open their beaks wide to breathe.
