Let's just get this out of the way: The title of this documentary is a bald-faced lie.
Yes, we've got chicken near-death experiences and mouth-to-beak CPR.
Yes, we've got a woman appearing to skinny dip with a rooster, giving him a blow-dry, and then loading him into her boxy 70s car to go solve crimes.
We've certainly got a headless chicken getting his shot at the big time and starring in a story that may have inspired John Woo's Face/Off.
And we've even got a chicken letting go and letting God as a midwestern pastor stretches for next Sunday's sermon and hitting his Reader's Digest word count.
But we absolutely do not have anything about the natural history of the chicken. And frankly, we don't care, because friend, if you were EVER going to watch something we’ve watched for this podcast, this is the one to watch.
Featuring Emmy-worthy animal acting (seriously) and guest appearances by Jesus, Sun Tzu, and the DaVinci Chicken, only one documentary will make you ponder one of the biggest questions in life: If a chicken eats a cow, and you eat that chicken, are you now eating red meat?
We’re watching Natural History of the Chicken, available to stream for free on Amazon Prime.
