Oh, WOW! THAT would be a BLAST!
I just hope some uptight busy-body doesn't twist an ankle and cause a repeat of the "kids got off the bus to wrestle an alligator" thing.
Do you have a video camera? At least get some digital Pics!

I hope they don't have too many mortalities from the crash.

I had the opportunity one time to watch a house being "caught". They try to do it all at night and only turn on red lights so the chickens will sit down and not move around so they're easier to catch. Then the catchers reach into the crowd and grab about 3 in each hand, with the legs tucked between their fingers. Then they walk to the cages and swing their hand full of chickens into the cage in one smooth movement, then the other hand. Quite a 'production'.

Sooo,.... whatcha havin' for supper? chicken? :-)
