    Hi gang,
    There's a documentary on at 10 pm tonight in Southern California on KOCE called 'The Natural History of the Chicken". I have not seen it yet, but it sounds interesting.

    For anyone who can't watch it in California, there's always YouTube.

    I've seen this before and it's great! Check it out.

    What channel is You Tube? Down here in Georgia I don't think we get that one. Everyone watch it so it will go nationally sometime.
    Have a good Hatch!

    It is on DVD and you can get it through PBS.org. It is funny in parts, like the lady in Florida with the pet Silkie Roo that she takes swimming with her in her pool, and the man that does the rooster calls. I've seen it several times, and even borrowed a copy from my local library.

    I think it was entertaining, but I almost felt there was a tongue-in-cheek mocking of some chicken owners eccentricity.

    It should be updated with more examples of urban chicken owners and some coverage of the amazing group we have at BYC!!!
