Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. And, you know, I have always wanted to live on a spaceship. Not like the Millennium Falcon - I don't want to do any fighting - more like the Starship Enterprise, where I could just hang out on a holodeck and wear really angular clothing.

That dream has come true for a flock of chickens in Idaho. A Boise couple needed a bigger coop, so they went all-out and built the chickens a spaceship. It's silver with windows and flashing lights. The chickens seem to really dig it - probably no holodecks, though.
