One thing that caught the Forager’s beady eye earlier in the month was a tale of poultry heroics.

According to a Wisconsin news network, a house had caught fire and the smoke alarms within it were not working.

Step in the family’s chicken, waking them up by “causing a commotion”.

Apparently it was adopted after being terrorised by dogs at a nearby farm. The newsreader commented that the chook was simply returning the favour.

Love how the lower bar in the video says “BIG STORY”.
