The Problem with Chickens

by Bruce McMillan
Illustrated by Gunnella

One Potato Review

Is this the sort of fable they tell in Iceland? Where chickens start acting like the ladies who farm them – too fussy, too clever, too soft – and then everyone commits themselves to a little yoga, some free weights, until the chickens remember what it is to be birds – flying and laying eggs – and the ladies learn how to climb mountains, and get out more? What does this tell us? About ourselves? Probably nothing. But those Icelanders sure know how to have a good time.
