Birds of a Feather
Here are some interesting facts about birds
-The most number of yolks found in a single chicken's egg is nine.
-Pigeons can reach up to 65mph. 75mph if chips have been sighted
-Ducks' feet have no nerves or blood vessels. This means ducks never feel the cold, even if they swim in icy cold water. This also means that you can tread on a duck's feet when going to the toilet in the middle of the cinema and it will not grumble.
-A chicken once had its head cut off and survived for over eighteen months. His name was Mike and he has a festival held every year in his honour. You can also find him on Facebook.
-A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.
