    burp? I haven't seen the answer to this anywhere. I figure they can since they can vomit. But I'm not totally sure. Any other answers?

    Hmmm...funny question. I find it hard to believe I could live in a home with non-burpers. It seems central to our existence here.

    Then again, perhaps because of the differences in anatomy between, say humans and birds or dogs and birds, with food not going directly to a stomach, maybe most of the gas would travel straight through and become a chicken fart.

    For the record, I wrote "fart" at the end of my last post and the computer magically changed it to "wind". What the...?

    Trying to figure out why the message board won't let me write the word F..A..R...T. There. It keeps substituting "wind." [​IMG]

    Fart...do I get in trouble now? Just had to try it... [​IMG]
    I don't think chickens burp. If they do they are very polite about it.

    Edit...Hey!!! It changed the word! Fart, fart fart.
