Have chickens been troubling you? Do you ever wish you could get them to leave you alone, just for a little while?
Do you ever wish you could hypnotize those bothersome chickens?
Take the problem chicken, turn it over, and hold it on the ground on its back. Then, draw its attention to something. You can do this by dragging your finger along the gound away from the chicken's head (make sure your finger is within the chicken's field of view). Done properly, this will put the chicken into a trance-like state for a while, during which its metabolism, breathing, and heart rate all slow down.
This is possible because every once in a while, chickens that play dead avoid being eaten. So, as a result of the magic of selection, you can now temporarily rid yourself of chicken-related annoyances.
It really works!
