a chicken in a very large cage is standing on a piece of plywood that has been squared off like a chess board, each square having a number on it.  you have a number on a ticket that you have bought.  the chicken must poop on the the number on the board that matches the number on your ticket in order for you to win. this great gaming tradition emerged out of the deep south of america, of poultry farmer legends and home-brewed intoxicants. variations of the sport are played in swampy louisiana gin joints, biker rallies and creepy tropical honeymoon tourist traps. some call it the chicken drop but mostly it's just called chicken shit bingo.
