Animatronic Chickens Go Live At South Side Grocer: 'The Kids Love It'

MORGAN PARK — For the past week, the "Farmstand 5" have been performing daily at County Fair Foods in Morgan Park.

The five animatronic chickens sing songs and tell jokes above a refrigerated case in the northwest corner of the grocery store at 10800 S. Western Ave.

The chickens launch into their routine at the push of a button, which seemed to amuse customers on Wednesday, though an eye roll or two might have been spotted from employees working at the deli counter nearby.

The neighborhood store has also long featured an animatronic cow that sings "Old McDonald" near the refrigerated display for milk.

"The kids love it," owner Tom Baffes said.
