Betty The Hen Eyes Record For First Chicken To Send Tweet

Chickens tweet all the time right? Wrong. At least not the kind of tweeting that involves 140 characters and the interweb.

A Perth chicken named Betty is preparing to become the first of her species to send a tweet across the internet.

In a world first, Betty the tweeting chook will be beak to keyboard in a bid to tweet out an actual word.

The Guinness Book of World Records is poised to recognise her as the "First Chicken to Send a Tweet" if she manages to send a five-letter tweet in English within 30 days.

Betty has a keyboard in her pen, but her dexterity has so far left much to be desired, with Twitter contributions such as "A$%Gbj", "aslffawe" and "fa*hh/".
