...by eating them!
MONTREAL - For several years, a small group of poultry enthusiasts has been pushing to save an authentic Canadian chicken from extinction.
They finally cooked up a plan to save the rare breed of barnyard fowl from oblivion - and it involves tossing thousands of them on the barbecue.
The Chantecler chicken, a bird once believed to be extinct, remains alive, but only around 2,000 of them are thought to be in existence and the majority of them are in Quebec.
The province now plans to ensure the breed's continued survival - by marketing it for the dinner plate.
Sounds good! Yum-yum! Authentic Canuck Dirty Birdy!
They're actually said to taste better...
