One day a traveling salesman was driving down a back country 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 farm house.
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."
