    Well actually I Netflix'd it... and it's not exactly a movie.. it's a PBS special.. but it was SO CUTE! It's called "The Natural History of the Chicken" and while the title sounds scientific it really just shares chicken keepers personal stories and some great facts too. Very safe for kids - the very last story is the BEST (about a silkie named Liza)...

    I loved it and have already watched it twice! It is "child safe" too [​IMG]

    Thanks for the suggestion, Kelly - I just added it to my Netflix queue.

    Coincidentally, I just returned "Chicken Run" to Netflix! [​IMG]

    I just requested it from my local library system. Can't wait to see it, but I heard there are indeed sad parts. I don't want to cry...
