  • Notes

    • Like so many episodes, this idea was taken from the Arnazes' true life. As newlyweds at their Desilu Ranch, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz raised chickens, cows, and had several dogs. They ate the eggs and drank the milk from their farm animals, but never slaughtered their pets for food because they became too emotionally attached. The writers remembered her impression of the chickens which made it's way into this episode.
