A fun and wholesome, one-hour long documentary that the whole family can enjoy, from Mark Lewis, the creator of Cane Toads. This time around the filmmaker decides to focus on chickens... or is it people and their chickens? One chapter has an old lady gamely re-enacting the story of how she brought one of her frozen pet chickens back to life by applying mouth-to-beak resuscitation. There are several other chapters, equally entertaining (including one about Colorado’s very own, Mike, the Headless Chicken). This is fun stuff that will make viewers switch over to free range eggs, if they haven’t already.
