One tall chicken


Coyotes are a problem in central Oregon, and the Rajneeshies wanted to raise chickens. Not to eat, but for the eggs. So they had to figure out how to keep the coyotes from eating the chickens. Somebody decided that "a really big chicken" would be able to keep the canines away, so emus were brought in. The first time the emus were released into the common yard with the chickens they immediately stomped the chickens to death. "The only thing worse than a coyote is a chicken," said Mr. Emu. I have a couple of Leica cameras with emu skin coverings.
