Chickens that are raised for meat are breed to get as large as possible in the shortest amount of time and are meant to be processed by the time they are about 6 months old. Their leg muscles are not strong enough to carry them after a while, and will eventually effect their overall health, until I …think they die of a heart attack???? I bought a small chick from the feed store and didn't know what I had gotten until she started having trouble walking and I research the breed. I was really upset that the feed store had sold me this one small chick and could not have at least told me what they were raised for and what would happen to her. I learned a lesson. (MORE)

Yes it is a cliche. It's a metaphor, of course. The image is of something without support, an unsupportable or shaky argument as of someone trying to stand on shaky legs. At one time, it was fresh and the imagery striking. Now, we hardly think about the imagery as the phrase itself is automatically …read as meaning, 'unconvincing'. In general, cliches like this are best avoided as they tend to be untranslatable. In the original context of the phrase, the meaning would have been obvious. It is far better to think of a fresh alternative or failing that, use simple English such as, "His logic is flawed." (MORE)

Aside from being pretty in pink, one of the flamingos' most famous characteristics is standing on one leg! Nobody knows exactly why flamingos like standing on just one leg so much, but scientists have a couple of ideas. The most likely reason is that it helps the beautiful birds to stay warm and… conserve body heat . Because they stand in water a lot of the time, flamingos are likely to lose body heat faster than those of us who don't spend a lot of time standing in water. Using just one leg lessens the amount of heat they lose to the cold water. Some other ideas about why they stand on one leg include preventing tissue damage or germs that they might pick up from the cold water they stand in, and preventing their muscles from getting tired by using just one leg at a time!
