Fugue state alarm chicken

Following on from the success (ahem) of the Autistic License, my mind turned to the other occasions whereby people do stuff entirely out of character, for example 8th being nice to kittens...

One reason can be a fugue* state and so I wanted to come up with something to help sufferers.

I was reminded that birds can be trained to do tricks, like pigeons and crows, I settled for chickens, in particular the breed that were first exported to North America in 1828 from Livorno.

The chicken would be trained to recognise the fugue state and to give a loud warning cry, in the manner of a foghorn, alerting others to possibly aberrant behaviour.

In this way, the fuguehorn leghorn can be of use to personkind.

*Not to be confused with a fugu state, brought on by badly prepared pufferfish.
