    I just had a kid tell me that his grandpa in Germany had chickens. He said that when one of his Grandpa's chickens got sick, he would dump it in a bucket of cold water and put it in a cold basement and they would get better. ( [​IMG] )

    What?


    Am I the only one that thinks that this is just a crazy load of rubbish?

    That's interesting.

    Sounds more like a censored version of the butchering process!

    I grew up in Germany, never heard that one before......It sounds more like the bucket+cold water+cold basement were a 'celestial transfer' for those poor chicks
