Bob Ross – the Mind Reading Chicken – died yesterday. At 20 years old, he was considered by many to be the world’s oldest chicken. Born 1990 in Abbyville, Alabama, he was a White Crested Black Polish, a show chicken and a Wonder of the World. Bob was a hit at numerous art festivals around the country from Alabama to New York and California.
He once made 364 dollars in one day during a show in Birmingham, Alabama. At one quarter per fortune, that’s 1456 fortunes told in one day!
And Sean Hayes wrote a telling song about the amazing Bob Ross called “Alabama Chicken.”
Bob died in his sleep Feb 3, 2010 in Seale, Alabama, and was buried in the Woods of Wonder.
