Two Good Ways to Hypnotize a Chicken

Ken Korczak:

Good news: there is not one, but two ways to put a chicken into a hypnotic trance!

Recently I was telling a friend that when I was young we used to put our uncle’s chickens to sleep by folding the bird’s head under a wing and then rocking it from side to side with a swaying motion. The chicken almost immediately starts breathing heavy and goes to sleep. Even if you set it down, it will stay with head under wing, snoozing.

I was surprised to learn that this is not the only method of chicken hypnotism, and not even the preferred method!

A friend showed me a much better way to mesmerize a chicken. Simply capture the chicken and then force it to look straight ahead as you trace “Xs” in front of it’s beak. Just make X marks with you finger — you don’t even have to draw real Xs, and the chicken will go into a deep trance just by watching this. I encourage readers to try this with their own chickens — you’ll be amazed!

  1. That isn’t really me. It’s an impostor. I don’t even have a cat!

    You’ll be hearing from my lawyer.
