Put out a row of feed and see if it pecked from left to right or right to left or randomly. If it pecked the row from left to right, then it’s not dyslexic. If it pecked from right to left, it’s simple dyslexia, but if it pecked randomly, then it’s probably schizophrenic.

Dyslexic chickens usually go, “Culck culck cuckl”. Dyslexic hens will usually lay gegs. ;-)

You have to tell us what this book is. If it’s Terry Prachet….. you get some points from me. (this sound soooo Terry Prachet to me…)

Did you hear about the dyslexic homeless guy?
He held up a sign reading “Will fuck for wood.”

Step 1: Teach chickens to read.
Step 2: I’ll tell you once you’ve finished step 1.

@cazzie one of my favourite books is, “Mort”. I nearly peed myself laughing

@tranquilsea Terry Pratchett is a genius.

So… Terry Pratchett could teach a chicken to read if it was dyslexic…. is that what we’re saying here?

@cazzie “Reaper Man” by Terry Pratchett

It’s a trick. All chickens are dyslexic. This is why you seldom see them reading. The chicken in question was undoubtedly as normal as chickens get.
