Hello all,

I am pleased to continue with a random, relatively obscure question.

We are conducting studies on tendon healing using a chicken model. Some
interesting data is coming through regarding the biomechanical differences
of toes 2, 3 and 4. Have any of the comparative biomechanics people ever
conducted studies on the pressure patterns of chickens while
walking/running? It would be relatively simple to do by placing chickens
inside a pen containing a foot pressure mat. I was just wondering if
somebody might have already done this.

Thanks for your help.

Andrew
