Have you ever even thought about whether a chicken can swim? YouTube member nothd70 wondered about it, and since he had a chicken and a pool, tried combining them to see. He was right there to make sure the chicken didn’t drown.
He is surprised and absolutely delighted to find that the hen floats! She doesn’t swim too well, but you can’t compare a chicken to a duck. If she had to, she could probably make it to the side of the pool, although slowly. Honestly, you’d be hard-pressed to find a bird that doesn’t float. That layer of fairly waterproof feathers trapping air between them makes a nice life jacket. -via reddit
