Little known Chicken facts

Ok... So earlier, papyrina
posted an interesting little tid-bit about pigs and 30 minute orgasms... All us pigs are still scratching our heads, wondering why it was that we got left out of THAT equation!

So here's some little known Chicken facts:

The largest chicken egg on record was nearly 12 oz., measuring 12 1/4" around. <-- shamedly peering down at my own "National Average" dingus...

The record for laying the most eggs: seven in one day. <-- SEVEN!!!

Chickens and turkeys are known to cross-breed, these breeds are known as "Turkins". <-- Not even going there...

Alektorophobia - An unreasonable fear of chickens. <-- Gives new meaning to the term "Chicken shit" doesn't it?

If a rooster is not present in a flock of hens, a hen will often take the role, stop laying, and begin to crow. <-- No... no... I can't do it... That's just too easy!

And just a few more - none that have anything whatever to do with chickens...

Coca-Cola was originally green.

It is possible to lead a cow upstairs but not downstairs.

A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.

In the 1940s, the FCC assigned television's Channel 1 to mobile services (two-way radios in taxicabs, for instance) but did not re-number the other channel assignments. That is why your TV set has channels 2 and up, but no channel 1.

Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history. Spades - King David, Clubs - Alexander the Great, Hearts - Charlemagne, and Diamonds - Julius Caesar.

Clans of long ago that wanted to get rid of their unwanted people without killing them would burn their houses down - hence the expression "to get fired."

The term "the whole 9 yards" came from W.W.II fighter pilots in theSouth Pacific. When arming their airplanes on the ground, the .50 caliber machine gun ammo belts measured exactly 27 feet, before being loaded into the fuselage. If the pilots fired all their ammo at a target,it got "the whole 9 yards."
