    Coincidentally enough, if I win the lottery I want to buy some land out in the country so I can raise chickens.   I won't have thousands, but a hundred or so will feed me, my family and any neighbors that want some, donate some to a food bank if they're close enough.   I'll feed the rest to the hogs, dogs and cats.

      I am so happy for you Jeff CONGRATULATION!  I am so happy to hear anyone wins big but especially a born again Christian!!!  Most people will use their prize for mostly selfish gains and it's nothing wrong with that cause we're selfish people, but evil folks will probably use money to produce more wickedness, s really good decent people should win more it's good for the society and their surroundings!  I don't go to casino but I love the state lotteries it funds it's own states in a good cause.   Alabama is so poor it doesn't have a lottery system but it has casinos sadly.

                            No, and I don't think it was meant that way.  I used to write headlines and it was an attempt at being "cutesy", but it also tied in that he's a chicken farmer and a Christian and the article states that the win will give him peace of mind and the ability to keep doing what he loves.

                            Besides all that, chicken feed ain't "chicken feed" these days - it's not nearly as cheap as it once was.  That's the thing I found misleading about the headline.

                              Hope they invested in a good security system after they did that story.
