A man was driving along a rural road one day when
he saw a three legged chicken. He was amused
enough to drive along side it for a while, as he was
driving he noticed the chicken was running 30 mph.
Pretty fast chicken, he thought, I wonder just how
fast it can run. So he sped up and the chicken did
too! They were now moving along the road at 45
mph! The man in the car sped up again, to his
surprise the chicken was still running ahead of him
at 60 mph!!!
Suddenly the chicken turned off the road and ran
down a long driveway leading to a farmhouse. The
man followed the chicken to the house and saw a
man in the yard and dozens of three legged
chickens. The man in the car called out to the
farmer "How did you get all these three legged
The farmer replied, "I breed 'em. Ya see it's me,
my wife and my son living here and we all like to
eat the chicken leg. Since a chicken only has two
legs, I started breeding this three legged variety so
we could all eat our favorite piece."
"That's amazing!" said the driver "How do they
"Don't rightly know, can't catch 'em."
