Sugar Creek Farm Goes Hollywood

You are so not going to believe this story, but I swear, it’s all true.

Last week a gal from a PR firm in Los Angeles called. They’re doing publicity for the DVD release of the movie Chicken Little, and she wanted to know if we’d enter their “Search for the Real Chicken Little” contest. All I had to do was measure our smallest adult chicken and email her a picture. Today she called to say we’re one of two finalists in the contest.

All I could think was, “I hope nothing has eaten Silkie Chicken since I was saw her yesterday!”

So we’re all flying to LA – with Silkie Chicken – next week. Had to take Silkie Chicken to the vet today to get her health certificate so she can fly on the plane.

I told you it sounds made up.

When I walked in the vet clinic, the vet was on the phone with the state veterinarian and I heard him say, “I’ve got this chicken going to Hollywood…” When he got off the phone he said, “They didn’t believe me!”

So Monday they’ll bring us – and Silkie Chicken – to Burbank for the publicity event. They’ll have a runway set up, and they want the 2 chicken contestants to walk down the runway. They’ll be filming all of this.

Wait. It gets better.

Also on the scene will be 100 stunt chickens. And their trainers. I don’t remember stunt chicken trainer being on the list of career choices my high school counselor gave us. Who knew?

So wish us luck. It will be quite the experience. While we’re out there they’re sending us to Disneyland, so looking forward to that. So many things to do before we leave. Like give Silkie Chicken a bath.

Hollywood, here we come!
