Guriec Soudee, 25, and his hen Monique have been sailing around the world for the past two years. Far from farms, Monique is probably the most adventurous chicken on the planet.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. So you might be asking why'd the chicken cross the sea?

You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
