Gunter Voelker owns a German restaurant in Northern Iraq and was proud to recently present a German tradition: Oktoberfest! The festivities included traditional German food, music and beer. He was glad to share the event with Iraqi people, Turkish people, Kurdish people, Americans and Germans alike. Voelker hoped the three-day party helped to show Iraq as a holiday destination where beer can bring people together.

At only one-year-old, Buffy the hen has to wear a sweater to keep warm as the fall approaches because she lost all her feathers. The hen was rescued by the RSPCA from a battery farm where she was over stressed; causing her to lose her feathers and be more than two pounds underweight. Buffy’s health had been restored, and her lack of feathers has made her a bit of a celebrity at the animal shelter! Believe It or Not!

100% duck, all chicken. This Chinese duck was purchased by a farmer, but he noticed something was wrong when the duck wouldn't go swim the the river with the other ducks. Ten days after the purchase, the farmer finally realized that the bird has chicken feet! Instead of the webbed toes of a duck that help in swimming, all its toes are separate. This is probably why it's scared of the water. Believe It or Not!
