"UNIQUE CHICKEN GOES IN REVERSE": short story recommendation

Title: "Unique Chicken Goes in Reverse"
Author : Andy Duncan
Published by Nightshade Books
Genre : Southern Gothic
Word count : 4,500 words approx.

A priest is summoned to a house to talk to a girl who has a frazzled chicken, which she has named Jesus Christ. She has great faith in it.

While not a laugh out loud kind of story, this 2007 Nebula Award nominee has a certain playfulness in it. When you've done reading it, you may also like to follow up on the name Flannery O'Connor. A link has also been provided in case you want to find out what kind of writing "southern gothic" is.
