    After my having read another post about this movies' being on television, I checked NETFLIX to see if they have it; they do. I just ordered it, and should have within a week.
    If you're a member, just paste " The Natural History of the Chicken " into the Search box, and it will take you right to it.

    EDIT: If you want a free trial of Netflix, go to: http://www.netflix.com/

    #2: And I know you'll also want to order:

    What happens when a fast-food chicken franchise is built on a sacred Native American burial site rife with restless spirits? Zombie chickens! Now it's up to high school grad Arbie (Jason Yachanin) to find a way to destroy the featherless fiends. Or will the fowl beasts turn the hungry drive-thru customers into the insatiable undead, too? This gleeful free-range romp through the supernatural also features Kate Graham and Allyson Sereboff.

    Watched it last night on You Tube.
    It is broken into 6 parts, but the quality was good.
    Very interesting video.

    I just watched the rest. That was a great little movie that guy made.
    It wasn't deep but it was wonderful.

    Of course, Liza, the fearless mother, and her owner's writings represented
    exactly how I feel about my chickens. They are all God's creatures.


    Any BYC member will laugh and maybe even be brought to tears by that
    documentary, if you can call it that.

    Cool, I'll have to look it up. We just signed up for Netflix and got the Instant Watch box. I'm gonna watch it real quick before hurricane Ike takes out my electricity, since afterwards I won't get it back for a week or more. [​IMG] Besides, I need to take a break from watching the coverage. (DirecTv channed 361 and XM radio 247 are both covering it.)

    PC, I may be getting to CT to get my birds the hard way! [​IMG]

    I'm on part 4/6 on youtube.

    The frozen chicken thing is hilarious. the guy on part two, that crows, spends waaay too much time with them. And the lady with the orange hair, that has a silkie soul mate, reminds me too much of PC. Just less hairy and more feminine.
