The title really sounds more like a title of Bones episode... but are you asking why was there a chicken in my kitchen? See, some people use their chickens only for egg laying but we take a full advantage of their abilities ;-)
See if you have little kids at home you also most likely have flies (due to the kids' inability to close the door every time they enter or exit the house through the porch door). And if you have flies, there is a chance you might get maggots in your garbage... especially if it is hot the way it is here. Now you know where I am going with this. So one day I ended up with these little guys in my garbage can - which by the way made me sick to my stomach. But it is comforting to know that I wasn't the only one out of my friends who had these visitors come through my house :-) First thing that came to our mind is to go get one of our girls and give some special treat. Doesn't she look overwhelmed?
First she had no idea what the heck we want from her... But eventually she got the point and she ate every single one of them! This is what I call "win-win" situation!
