THAT THE EGG CAME FIRST THEN THE CHICKEN !!!!!!
Up until I was arount 15 I always thought the red bit on a seguls beak was ketchup from the fish and chips people had been feeding them
I used to believe, if I put one of the eggs from the fridge my mum got from the supermarket, into our airing cupboard, it would hatch into a chick... I would check it everyday for it's progress
i used 2 think ostriches didnt have wings
I used to believe that when crows and/or ravens were flying overhead you could, if you closed your eyes and concentred, transfer your body and mind into the birds, and when you re-opened your eyes you could see the world as they saw it, while soaring above and looking down. I think I actually did that!!!
I used to think that hummingbirds had to flap their wings to keep their heart beating. So, I would run around the yard and make sure that they didn't land, so they didn't die.
I used to believe that humming birds didn't have feet. I felt really sorry for them, because I thought they were doomed to spend their entire lives hovering.
One day when I got home from school my mom questioned me about something that had happened at school. I asked her how she knew about that. (I guess the teacher had called and told her.) She said a little birdie had told her. After that I cursed those birds that sat on the window sills at school and always folded my hands nicely and looked straight ahead whenever I saw one looking at me!
Since you would plant flower seeds to get flowers,I used to believe that planting bird seed would produce-birds!
My aunts use to tell me that when I pouted the crows would come and bite my lips.
I used to believe that chickens reproduced A sexually and that roosters were just handicapped chickens.
When I was a kid I used to believe that sparrows were actually pigeons' children... I was convinced that was true because they are always together and I never saw a baby pigeon or a ''big sparrow''.
I used to think that "mourning doves" were called afternoon doves starting at noon!
When I was little, my family sometimes bought chicken for us to eat. I mostly ate the chicken legs, and when I was done, the bone was left over. I thought that if I saved all the bones from the chicken legs, I would be able to put them all together and make a model of a chicken's skeleton! I assumed that the bones in the chicken's legs were the same kind of bones found in the rest of it's body.
In my country, there is a desert called "bird milk" or something like that.(can't translate exactly).When i was little my mom always had me capturing some birds for her to make that sweet stuff. I was wondering about how she managed to get milk out of the birds, but I always managed to catch some for her. Now I can't remember how i got to know the truth...Anuway...it was cool.Peace.
Growing up, we lived across from a field and there would always be tractors tilling the soil. As the tractors would move along, flocks and flocks of seagulls would follow and try to eat whatever was being churned up. One day when I was very young, my family and I were watching this and I stated very matter of factly that "tractors make seagulls"
I thought I was so smart for figuring that out on my own.
I used to believe tucans were not real animals but some king of mythological creature.
I never used to eat eggs because I worried that they would hatch in my tummy and I would give birth to chicks
when my mom was a kid she thought that if you caught a hummingbird, it would drill a whole through your hand.
you know these birds-storks?and the way they stand-on one leg in the lakes?
so...i was verry surprised to find out that storks have TWO legs!
