I saw this story and thought I would share it. http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_2326505.html?menu=news.quirkies.animaltales Two chickens have become well known in China for their skills with a football. Owner Ms Zhang says the two bantams have become addicted to the game. "I found an unwanted football on the way home around three months ago, and brought it home and kicked it to the two cocks. They were scared at first," she told the People's Daily. But after a while, the chickens started to play with and fight for the ball. "I now bring them downstairs everyday to play football. They are quite addicted to the sport," she added. "They know how to break through, slide-tackle, and make a fair charge."
