As customary with my posting to FoRK of potentially old bit lists,
I've added one Chicken of my own to ensure there's at least one
new bit in there somewhere. A buck to you if you can guess which
one(s) I added. Hint: they're not the lamest ones.

Can't cluck, can't fly, and can't lay eggs, but you can carry it

road, so there's no way to tell it to.

download one to the other side. (Of course, those are chicklets! :)
