Got Milk? How About Eggs?

These folks who live along Route 66 between Vinita and Afton do!  Their chickens appear to live along the road - literally.  Although they're dangerously close to traffic out there every day, so far I've only seen one dead hen in the road.  Do you suppose they're trained to look both ways before crossing?   And while we're on the subject, why DO chickens cross the road?  These must go somewhere to lay the eggs that the folks are selling because I've never seen any eggs in the grass.  Just a little touch of casual farming on old Route 66.
