    Latest in green power, chickens power! Cheep cheep to run.
    Much faster than estimated. Nothing but feathers and wood splinters left on the water. Though the first run was a disaster and we were all traumatizes from the accident not to say anything about the loss of feathers. The brave chicken crew wants to try it again, this time with a sailboat.
    Wish us luck!
    Just kidding, it’s just a Whirligig, wind turns blades and makes the chicken wings flap. upload_2018-10-14_8-34-31.jpeg

    And the wind is always ahead when paddling so it will always work!

    One thing is for sure: The chicken will cross the road (or lake in this case)! If you're in a canoe race this will obviously cause a bit of drag so don't be in a hurry where ever you go.

    The only thing that happen in a hurry is trouble, is what I told the crew. Then they made some comments about my courage and took o fence at your comments.
    Roostnoulli said I had my equations all wrong, a ruckus broke out in the hen house and that’s when PETA was called in.
    I am afraid he hole thing is going off the rails.
