    My mother in law wanted to sell eggs at the farmers market. The person running the farmers market said that the chickens need to be checked out and that he will send someone by to test them.
    The next day someone showed up and took a few chickens and scratched them under the wings and said yup your chickens are fine to sell and left.

    What was he testing for?
