where the hens are real eggheads They wear glasses and prefer Beethoven to the Beatles The hens are easily bored sensitive and quarrelsome But the eggs they lay are uniformly large and with more yolk than white Theyre just the kind of eggs pastry firms in Milan north of Muzzanp want for their mass production Chicken experts say they found out the only way to get such eggs on a regular schedule was to give hens the best of everything The result is the Aurora Poul try Farm a Utopia where no hen has to scratch for a living At Aurora specially prepared mash 5s delivered every day at the same time on an electron ically controlled belt The hen house never gets hot or stuffy Its air conditioned Lest any hens become dis turbed by changes in the weath er a lighting system creates the illusion of an endless summer day The experts also learned that nothing helps egg production so much as music They found out that catchy rhythms like rock n roll tend to disturb the chickens but the hens take to the classics like ducks to water As a result the chickens get a daily diet of Beethoven Bach and Chopin piped over hen house loudspeakers For some reason however this life of luxury has made the hens so irritable they cant stand the sight of each other To avoid pointless bickering the chickens are fitted with special rubber blinders that look like eyeglasses MacARTHUR BURIED General of the Army
