    Has anyone out there ever walked a chicken (or tried to)?

    I have not. However, way up here in the states, in California in particular, contestants in poultry showmanship must "walk" their birds back and forth for the judge. They use a stick to guide the bird, similar to how they show hogs around here (obviously, hogs are a little more difficult).

    No leash on 'em, but that's about as close to walking a bird as I've seen! (look on YouTube?)
