Flip the Birds

There are some people in our fair state that believe the Brown Thrasher, our current state bird, doesn’t represent Georgia to the fullest and deserves a change.

Nothing official has been proposed yet, but this is entertaining nonetheless. I believe Georgia’s NHL team might have a problem with changing its name. Consider this your “Spring is Here” OPEN THREAD on this beautiful Saturday.

    What’s wrong with the Brown Thrasher? No one is seriously considering the chicken as the state bird, are they? Give me a break! Leave well enough alone. As for me, I enjoy the thrashers that hang out in our yard. They aren’t ugly and they are quite comical to watch.

        Or he would force all of the former state birds to interbreed and then cross that new bird with a turkey to get a whole new animal to be the official state bird.

        If Ox gets elected, expect him to push for the ‘Chickamauga Campaign Contributor’ to be made the official game bird of Georgia.

    Like most states, we have all kinds of categories for “Offical State” whatever. Pick a particular breed of chicken that is raised in Georgia and name it the Official State Poultry and leave it at that.

    As important as the poultry business is to the state economy, the poultry farmers need to check their egos and realize that are millions of people living in this state who have no connection to their industry except for consuming their product.

    For Perdue to get involved, he’d be heavily criticized due to a conflict of interest. In fact, I’d advise any politician named Perdue to stay away with legislation involving Chickens.

    Rhode Island has a chicken as it’s state bird the Rhode Island Red.
    Besides the Brown Thresher Georgia has the Bob White as it’s official state game bird.
    WE could make the chicken the official domesticated bird and the phoenix the official mythological bird.
