Chicken People

Documentary


 

The Ohio National Poultry Show is a year away and we're taken into the world of three devoted chicken breeders as they prepare their champion broods for competition.

There is something disarming about people who follow their passion and do what they love, even when that calling is breeding and showing chickens. The poultry-people claim that their brood have extraordinary characteristics and traits, but the super-chickens are nowhere near as interesting as the breeders themselves; there's not one rotten egg among them. An insightful and delightful doco, if a little quirky. Feeling clucky punk?
