Oak Tree

Did you know that...

oak trees are struck by lightning more than any other trees.

Oaks, because they tend to grow taller than most other trees, have a deep central root as well as hollow water-filled cells that run up and down the wood of the oak's trunk. These two qualities make oak trees better conductors (and better grounded) than trees with shallow roots and closed cells.

Did you know that...

chickens will not walk on ice!

Maybe they know a thing or two about friction :)

But seriously, chickens like to be high and dry. Chickens have scaly, bare feet. They don’t like walking on snow or ice. They’ll do it, but they won’t be happy.
