    OMG - that reminds me of a story that a former co-worker told us a few years back. He was born in France (very near Belgium and close to the sea evidently). He later became a US citizen and worked with us for several years. He was SO funny because he could "turn on the French" at will and his accent would become SO thick.

    Anyway - someone evidently "gave" his family a couple of chickens when he was a kid. They didn't live on a farm and I don't remember the details of where they kept the chickens most of the time, but his father decided that the chickens needed to get out and get some "exercise"......

    So his father made some little harnesses, put them on the chickens and would regularly take them to the beach for their exercise.

    I know it doesn't come across as funny as when he told us, but the image of chickens on a "lead", being walked like dogs on a beach just cracked us all up and we'd laugh until we cried every time he told the story. And believe me, we encouraged him to tell it to new people any time we had the chance just to hear him tell it again, since he KNEW we were going to break up into uncontrollable laughter.

    :D

    That's hilarious! I (almost) wish I was still working with the guy to show him this.....

    Nawwww - I'll see if I can find him on fb and send it to him.

    I think having chicken leashes are a great idea. I would get some for mine.
