Good morning Shane, Adam, Charles -
thanks for this lesson - perhaps I will try to write an animated chicken
doing his job at best as possible - just as chickens do!

'chicken scratching' is meant to be jokey/sarcastic - it means a 'poor
attempt' - for instance if one doesnt write very well, say like a
doctor's writing, Americans would say 'that's a chicken scratching'!
Some deafies in the US would say 'oh my god, he do have chicken scratching
The phrase is chiefly limited to the US as its not popular in Ireland
and the UK.
