    I've head that chickens, like all birds don't have the ability to burp or fart. That being said, i'v heard if you feed a chicken an alka selzter or a soda, BOOM!!!!

    is this true?

    I dunno but my Golden Comet roo grew up sipping Diet Coke out of my can -- he seemed to burp just fine.

    My daughter spends a lot of time with our chickens and says they definitely fart.
    Don't know how well they'd tolerate alka seltzer, but.......

    To say if chickens blow up, it could be more proned to be from the behind.

    And I thought I spent too much time with my chickens! Next thing we know, someone will start a thread about which breeds fart the most and loudest. In case that happens, here is a shortcut to have a winning chicken: Feed it Alpo and Saurkraut.[​IMG]
