State elections in Nevada have become less of a circus and more of a farmyard this week after chicken fancy dress costumes ruffled plenty of feathers. It all started after an unfortunate candidate said people should barter for healthcare like in the days of the Wild West when they used chickens. This didn't go down too well and things descended into farce when her opponents set up a website called 'Chickens for Checkups'. Voters soon picked up on the joke and began to demonstrate at campaign events wearing chicken fancy dress. Now, officials have tried to ban the costumes from polling stations - without much success. Although people aren't allowed to wear insignia like badges to cast their votes, there's nothing in the law to say that fancy dress is 'fowl' play. The Associated Press spotted one man head to the ballot box in Las Vegas this week dressed as a bird, then come out with an 'I voted' sticker on his feathers! Well, you can't blame people for wanting a bit of fun at a dull political event - they probably spend all day 'cooped up' in offices. If you want to head to any sort of event dressed as poultry, you could go as a pair, with your other half in Rooster fancy dress and you as a chicken.
