Reblogging this because it’s interesting. Not that I’m too worried about malaria, but it’s always neat learning about other uses for chickens besides eggs, meat and pets.

Also amused (or not so much) that we now need ‘studies’ to tell us something our fore-bearers must have known by instinct or trial&error.

But … yay! Chickens!
