Why was the chicken tied to a stick?

Do you think it’d work on the Plenty River?

I dont see why not - If History repeats - you have a few months to get your hands on a chicken and some pipe

Sounds like the Plenty might be a good spot to give these a run

Back in the old days, wed put a layer hen on some eggs. Had a pen with bird cage wire around it. Always put a couple of hard boiled eggs under the hen so that wed know when a snake had been in taken the eggs. Itd take a while to crush the hard boiled eggs & provide a bit of a challenge when a crazy snake was way through the wire

ahh clever - skinny on the way in and too fat to get out.

Reminded of a baboon catching/water finding technique.

Dig a little hole into an anthill while baboons are watching - they are very inquisitive and wont be able to stop themselves coming over to see what you've been doing - place small round fruit into hole - baboon comes over and grabs fruit - you sprint over with net - the baboon has made a fist around the fruit and now his hand wont come out of the hole - he is so spooked he doesnt think to let go of the fruit,

Then you tie the baboon to a stake out in the sun - feed him salt all day - then let him off the rope - he will sprint straight for the secret water stash

Just an eye trick.

The "chicken" is infact a baby chick.

I did a bit of research and found a pic of the "Chick" and his owner

The reason the chick is tied up is to protect the snake

moral of the story - don't go out in the desert without your baboon!

I can see the rush on sales of baboons coming to a store near you soon Larry
