Chicken Sniffles

Jeff and I were out visiting and started laughing at a chicken that had a funny thing going on with his feathers. One feather on its neck was sticking out sideways, making a “t” with its head. Our friend said, “He has a cold, so I pushed a feather through the neck skin to cure him.” I was curiosity, “What symptoms did the chicken have?”

“He had a cold,” she said matter-of-factly. I had to ask my question again, “What symptoms did he have?” Now she was laughing at me. Everyone knows that when a chicken is congested and coughs and has a funny nose, he is sick with a cold. Even though Jeff and I asked several times we still couldn’t figure out exactly how a feather would help.
