Voter ID has gotten large amounts of media attention, but residents of rural areas are concerned about another identification issue that has remained largely ignored: chicken ID. ...
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's proposed rules for Animal Disease Traceability, developed in August 2011, are now in their final stages. They require identification of farm animals, such as poultry and cattle, that cross state lines.
Many farmers worry the rules would send them on a literal wild goose chase, forcing them to catch and hold down each bird to attach an identification tag.

Is this really necessary? Seems like this country has survived quite some time without this.
The only ID I want on my chicken is fried, grilled, baked, etc.
there will be a tax on every single chicken so a careful account of all chickens must be established - although I am being sarcastic, I’m probably not for off.
So chickens need ID but voters don’t???
Antonin Scalia would approve of this and claim that the law is legitimate as it is related to interstate commerce.
So let me get this straight. A frigging chicken has to have a unique ID to cross a State line, but requiring identification to cast a ballot is a violation of civil rights.
Our government has gone completely insane.
Another stupid idea that should be tossed.
A regulatioon thought up by some beaureaucrat sitting on his ass in a chair who has never seen a farm.
The chicken SWAT teams can’t be far behind.
The chickens are going to fly the coop over this!
Only if you want them to vote......
This is an undue burden on minority chickens. Many of them don’t have time nor money to drive to the DMV to get identification. This is just an attempt by racists to prevent them from getting to market. You KNOW they’re only going to check identification from the chickens with brown or black feathers.
nothing would surprise me any more from these marxist assclowns.
Speaking of Chickens:
Antibiotics in Chicken Could Be Cause of Bladder Infections In Humans
they can take the mass chicken transit and an ID costs ...chickenfeed.
Do you tag their ears like they do cattle?
Second point: to qualify to be a Chicken Inspector you need to know the answer to, “What is the white stuff on the top of chicken$hit”?
Answer “Just more chicken $hit”!
It’s time that people get it in their heads that the majority of federal fascist bureaucrats are traitors and enemies of America and start treating them as an enemy. A good start would be ostracism from the communities they live in, harassment by county sheriffs and an ocassional fistfight.
Don’t worry - one of Zerobama’s biggest supporters is one of the biggest chicken farmers in the country. He will either get a pass - or he will get this killed - my bet.
