Saw It: "Chicken People"

Recommended Posts

We watched this on Amazon Prime Video recently thinking it would be a story of the weirdos who are into poultry. ( Seriously, there's some strange birds and I don't mean the ones with wings. ) Instead we got a really cool documentary which follows three people who show poultry and their attempt to win top spot.

The one guy, an engineer, has such a complex breeding program to get just the right bird he has hatched over 6,000 chicks. His dedication was amazing to see. Another guy I wasn't too keen on, especially how he talks about "his" birds and all the work yet his elderly parents are shown doing all the work while he pursues a music career in Branson Mo. When he found a chick that needed to be euthanized, talked about how hard it was and then a minute later is seen telling his dad he'd have to take care of it, I wanted to reach through the screen and strangle him. 

Anyway, it was a good documentary and if you're into agriculture or livestock, it's worth a watch.
