My Great Grandma has always been a character. She grew up on a farm, so she knew how to hold her own with the random cousins, uncles, aunts, kids and SISTERS. She had a sister named Nellie. Nellie had a chicken, Big Red. This chicken was no ordinary chicken, he liked to walk up and attack anything that moved. (Excluding Nellie, of course.) Unfortuantely, Big Red ran into my great grandma. She is like Lucille Ball, no joke. Red hair, and younger pictures look like her. Well that chicken attacked her, and she kicked it. But that wasn't good enough for old Lucille Ball. She asked her mother what was for dinner, then volunteered to help prepare it. Unbeknowenst to anyone else, she quietly walked up to Big Red and chopped his head off. She then put the head in Nellie's shoe, and gutted the chicken for dinner. Only afterwards did she telll her sister what they were eating. True story! If you knew my grandma, you could see her doing this! Any other ancient-chicken stories? I about fell out of my chair when I heard her tell the story! ETA: This happened about 70-75 years ago.
