Actually I had a pet hen once who loved to sit on my head - she propped her feet on my ears and gave my scalp a thorough going-over for mites and other nasties, like ticks. Very useful, every family should have a head-sitting hen. Being a very independent and politically correct fowl, she would've been insulted at the mere mention of duck tape.
