Last installment - Little Known Facts

10. In Gainesville, Georgia, (the chicken capital of the world), a local ordinance makes it illegal to eat your chicken with a fork.

11. The waste produced by one chicken in its lifetime can supply enough electricity to run a 100 watt bulb for five hours.

I wonder if that is the lifetime of a factory or  free-range chicken.  Those lifetimes are years different.

12. China has the most people in the world, *and* also has the most chickens. There are over 3,000,000,000 chickens in China! (The United States has only 450 million.)

13. The longest recorded distance flown by any chicken was 301.5 feet.

14. The record for laying the most eggs in one day was seven.
