This is one of those documentaries that open a window into a whole other way of life: in this case, competitive chicken breeders. These single-minded people are striving to create the ideal bird that will win grand champion at the big chicken show. Who knew there were so many ways to groom a chicken? Baths, beauty products on the feathers, comb enhancers, blow-drying. These folks lay it out there with their personal problems: alcoholism, low self-esteem, relationship issues, bullying, panic attacks—and how raising chickens has helped their lives get better. As one person says: “Poultry is a bit of an oasis for me. Chickens don’t judge you.” Chicken People is very entertaining, and I’m sure all the chicken fans around here will love it.
