A Maine farmer says she found a chicken frozen stiff, but was able to resuscitate it. Colorado natives tell a story of the chicken who lost its head-- and went on living. A Virginia farmer tells about (and demonstrates) the benefits of raising chickens for his own consumption.

Through these and other stories, this documentary illuminates the role that chickens play in (some of) our lives. Written by Ken Miller See less
