Description: Photograph of a black chicken flying out of a mailbox as part of the chicken flying contest at the Texas Folklife Festival. The mailbox, on the right, is red and blue and is on a tall white post that raises it high in the air. A man and woman are standing on a connected platform on the right. The woman is pushing a plunger through the open back of the mailbox to make the chicken fly out. The man is holding a piece of cardboard over the open back to keep the chicken from coming out that side. The chicken is mid-flight, just having flown out of the front of the mailbox. The only thing visible in the background is the sky.
