Chicken Sh*t Bingo has been a staple of Southern tavern life for decades and now it’s free-ranged its way to Milwaukee, thanks to “Farmer” Tyler Baggins.
Baggins operates Chicken Sh*t Bingo MKE – a traveling service featuring a man, a ready-to-eliminate chicken and a bingo card.
The game is simple: Players buy a ticket for $10 that’s individually marked with a number that’s also on the “bingo cards” (actually, Post-It notes) lining the bottom of the chicken’s cage. The chicken’s first dropping drops onto a number and determines the winner who then collects all of the ticket money.
Occasionally, the chicken releases two feces simultaneously. This is referred to as a “double sh*t” and the round is examined via instant replay on Baggins’ phone to figure out which poop plopped first.
For now, the service is free for bars.
“For the price of zero dollars, we will bring the chickens and the game to your event. Chicken Sh*t Bingo is for the people, all we ask is that you provide the people,” says Baggins.
Numerous Milwaukee bars have already hosted the poultry-poo game, including The Garage, Promises, Last Rites, Enlightened Brewery and The Drunk Uncle. Chicken Sh*t Bingo is also available for birthday parties, weddings and work events.
“There's nothing more team building than collectively watching a chicken drop a turd on a number,” says Baggins.
Baggins rents the chickens from a Wisconsin farmer and assures they are treated humanely. He refers to them as “The Lovely Ladies Of Chicken Sh*t Bingo” and they all have names: Heather, Masyn, Linda.
“The lovely ladies are loved and adored and live lavishly with their sisters on a chicken farm,” says Baggins. “Bottom line is, there is nothing like Chicken Sh*t Bingo. Every game, one person wins cash, but everyone who plays wins a story for life.”
