    It was totally awesome. They showed mostly the good stuff and I was crying at the end. It was a great show. They had a bit about Mike the headless chicken in great detail. And about a man that had 100 roosters and was made to get rid of all but 5. He was seemily raising them to fight because he had a house for each one and they were tied down with a string of some sort. Then they had a bit about about a frizzle that saved all her chicks from a hawk and she was still alive, very heart warming. It was shown in the midwest area. I hope everyone can see it soon. [​IMG]

    I didn't see it tonight, but I have the DVD and can play it anytime. Love that little white silkie hen that was willing to give its life to save its chicks.
