Oh my God
30 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lowell Friggin' Thomas narrated this? I never knew that before. I'm not really sure what the point of it is; I mean, except maybe farmers, what would the average American need to know about chickens? And why would Lowell Thomas - a pioneer in journalism and broadcasting, a world traveler who made T.E. Lawrence a household name - be involved in such a poultry. . . er, I mean PALTRY film? Next I'm gonna learn that Sir Alec Guinness narrated an instructional video for a British chimney sweeping service. . .

I saw this on MST3K, as I'm sure most everyone here did, and got a lot of laughs out of it. Eight stars for their effort.
