Thanks Gene. These sites confirmed some of the things I
had recalled about the chicken cannon: that the birds were
propelled by compressed air, and that the gun looks an awful
lot like something that would come off a battleship (because
thats where it came from). The video, which I would really
like to get a copy of, shows the canopies being whacked by
the birds. One of the things I wondered about is all the
chicken salad that would settle on the ground after a few
tests. Would the ants go crazy for a few weeks? They
wouldnt let me go out there and look. {8^D spike
