A Salesman’s Encounter With The Three-Legged Chicken

One day, a travelling salesman was driving down a backcountry road at about 30 mph when he noticed that there was a three-legged chicken running alongside his car.

He stepped on the gas but at 50 miles per hour.

The chicken was still keeping up.

After about a mile of running, the chicken ran up a farm lane and into a barn behind an old farmhouse.

The salesman had some time to kill, so he turned around and drove up the farm lane.

He knocked at the door and when the farmer answered, he told him what he had just seen.

The farmer said that he was a geneticist and had developed this breed of chicken because he, his wife and his son each like a drumstick when they have chicken and this way they only have to kill one chicken.

“That’s the most fantastic thing I’ve ever heard,” said the salesman.

“How do they taste?”

“I don’t know,” said the farmer.

“We’ve never caught one.”
