Chickens beat Columbus to the New World

Afarensis says that it was actually Polynesians who must have brought chickens to South America in pre-Columbian times, but obviously he and the researchers he cites are unaware of the famed Seafaring Sea Chickens of Tonga who explored the planet well ahead of the Polynesians.

Did the Tongan chickens think the world was flat and that they might fall off the edge!

This is tonga in cheek.

The obvious question, of course:

Why did the chickens cross the Pacific?

Why did the chickens cross the Pacific?

To get away from the mess they had made and start a creation museum.

I was aware of them, but didn’t want to mention them, poor things, since upon arriving in the New World they were made lunch of by the giant Tongan sea rats (close cousins of the Sumatran Rat Monkeys). It was a very sad episode in the history of the Seafaring Sea Chickens of Tonga.

If they’re really Chickens of the Sea, aren’t they really just tuna?

This thread is poultry in motion!

But did the Tongan sea chickens come first, or the Tongan sea eggs?

People usually say that evolution says that the egg came before the chicken. But when it comes to Tongan sea chickens I think evolution chickens out.

Aha! It seems you have forgotten the earlier Mononesians, the seagoing root culture of the Polynesians. ( http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Gilber[…]ivan_Islands )

The Tongan Sea Chickens may well have been transported by them. Also, Mononesians may have been the ones teaching Sea Chickens the ropes.

However, the Tongan Sea Chickens already knew how to lay eggs. The rumor that Leatherback’s were involved is just old turtletale.

if creationists say that kangaroos got to australia after the great flood by rafting there, why couldn’t chickens get to the americas the same way?

Kangaroos have big tails, which may have been needed to steer the rafts. Without big tails, chickens would just be lost at sea. :D
