Now there's something you don't see everyday.

I have to find a chicken to try this for myself.

They have steady cam rigs that do the same thing for the movie industry. Wonder if it would work for DSLR's.

that is really awesome. and a funny video thanks for sharing. I wonder what allows the chicken to do that? funny thing is I have never noticed that, although im a city slicker I have been around more than my fair share of chickens.

I think I found my new tripod system. I wonder if the chicken head can support my camera and lens

Perhaps if an SLR was strapped to the head of a chicken it would be stabilised?
