When it comes to extraordinary animals you may have heard of Paul the Octopus and his Psychic Readings. Paul was amazingly able to predict the winners of all seven matches of the German Football team during their world cup adventure.
Now it has emerged that a Chicken from county Kildare in Ireland has shown the same use of precognition as his eight legged predecessor. Rocky the Irish psychic chicken successfully predicted the winners of the entire all-Ireland championships and even the senior football semi final cup winner.
Rocky’s owner answered an Irish radio stations competition to find an animal with paranormal skills and since then he hasn’t been out of the limelight.
The Chicken owned by Elaine and Paul McDonald chooses his results by picking one of three seed filled saucers labelled win, lose and draw. As he has chosen against his local side of Kildare to lose their games Rocky is thought to be unbiased in his predictions. Elaine was quoted as saying ‘I have never wanted him to be wrong before but it has upset some of the locals with his latest prediction!”.
Elaine and Paul have said they knew there was always something very exceptional about Rocky and from an early age he would often sit on their shoulders when they were on their computer and try to press the keys. It is said that Rocky unlike most other chickens is very well mannered and has become a household pet to the owner’s children Ella and Hanna.
Rocky has become such a celebrity in Ireland that he has been offered his first television part on an Irish children’s programme. The TV show called Elevate will feature Rocky each week and is set to make the psychic chicken a household name. He has been compared to Jedward as he is currently sporting a spiky fringe and a lot of attitude
Children’s television isn’t going to be the end of the road for Rocky as he has also been in talks with the Irish Television station RTE to make an appearance at the All Ireland finals. It is thought that Rocky will be sticking to his predictions and not branching out into Tarot Readings just yet!
