They say you should let sleeping dogs lie. We can't say the same for chickens, though.

When this guy caught his chicken catching some Zs, he decided to wake him up. The bird was certainly startled. You know the feeling: you're having the dreamiest of dreams, the kind where you're curled up on the beach without a care in the world while the golden sun sets beyond with the waves gently rolling in to shore. Then, reality hits you hard in the face when your mom shakes you to tell you to get out of bed so you're not late for school.

That's exactly what appears to happen to this poor chicken, who looks around to get his bearings before scampering off to wherever he needs to go.

The chicken's owner says he caught him sleeping on the job. One more time and you can bet he's going to get his clucking papers.
