    First off that is not a KFC trophy. That is Lucky's chariot, called the LUCKY BUCKET.

    Here are a couple links to Lucky racing...






    And Miss Ohio flys a kite wearing a tiny harness that is called a "Feather Tether". They sell them to put parrots on a leash.

    You have mentioned that kite flying chicken several times, do you have any video? How does she do it exactly, when she feels the pressure she runs, or you help her to know, etc. Just very very curious, I love seeing your pics! [​IMG] I wanna know more!

    This is an early vid while MissO was still being trained. In the beginning you can see I am feeding her grapes. She basically runs after me looking for more grapes. After the kite crashes, she runs toward my wife who is filming, hoping for more treats. It took a while to get Miss Ohio to focus on me only. Lucky was trained using sunflower seeds to pull her chariot in races. I have other video's but these are being compiled with soundtrack by a videographer friend into a short film that chronicles LittleChickenRacingTeam's crazy chicken antics. Should be finished mid summer this year.
