Cash for Cluckers The government's newest giveaway program! If you agree to take in a homeless chicken, the government will pay you $45.00. You must agree to feed, water, house and care for the clucker and not eat them. Government agents will randomly (mostly on Sundays) come to your home around dinner time to make sure you have not eaten your assigned clucker. For additional information, contact the White House directly or any member of ACORN. This program is not available in Iowa.
