    If you get Discovery Channel, right now on Dirty Jobs they are catching chickens in Miami. Pretty interesting.

    It was pretty funny. I guess they have a lot of wild chickens in Miami. One quote on the show said "Chickens are the most populous bird on the planet. There are more of them than there are of us." Hope they aren't planning a secret revolution....

    I loved how Mike thought chickens wouldn't be hard to catch... and that he had no idea they could fly!!!

    I watched it last night, I didn't even know that they had special departments just for catching 'feral' chickens. Did you see the response when Mike Rowe asked about the feral cat with kittens? They said they don't do cats. Sorry I had to do some math: 5 workers a day at say $200/worker/day is $1000/day and they average 100 chickens a day. Miami pays $10/chicken to catch them, is it really that big of a problem?
