Border agents have been left stunned after a traveller attempted to sneak a gun onto an aeroplane by stuffing it into a raw chicken.

The unidentified person was caught at Florida's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and let's just say the chicken didn't manage to fly high in the sky. So, much like a real life chicken, really.

America's Transportation Security Administration (TSA) shared the featherless faux-pas to social media to point out that a gun doesn't belong in a chicken's bum.

"The plot chickens as we barrel our way closer to Thanksgiving," TSA said on social media.

"For us, it’s a time to be thankful that our officers are always working around the cluck to keep you safe. Take for instance this 'hen you believe it' find at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport."

The TSA kept their pun game remained strong while commenting: "We hate to beak it to you here, but stuffing a firearm in your holiday bird for travel is just a baste of time.

" This idea wasn’t even half-baked; it was raw, greasy, and obviously unsupervised. The only roast happening here is this poor packing choice."

Well Glock-a-doodle-do, we reckon most folks could have come to the conclusion that this was a bad idea.

Security was less than impressed by this half-baked idea to smuggle the weapon inside the uncooked chook but hey, sometimes the dumbest ideas are the ones that work best.

But this is 'Murica, so you can travel on a plane with a gun.

The TGA added: "Feather you like it or not, there are rules for travelling with guns and ammunition. So, don’t wing it; roost over the proper packaging info [on our website]."

And, much like a chicken prior to Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, the idea was roasted on social media.

One Instagram user said: "Do these people not understand how x-ray machines work?"

Another pointed out: "Answering the age-old question: What came first, the chicken or the Glock 45?"

A third person just piled on the puns: "That’s one way to run afowl of the law. Wattle they think of next? At least the gun wasn’t cocked and loaded with any pullets. Perhaps the point of their aim was to fire up the grill and pull the trigger on roasting the bird?"

To whoever wrote that gem of a response: please marry me.

Anyway, that's not the weirdest thing that someone has attempted to smuggle on to a plane.

Last year a chainsaw was discovered by the TGA in New Orleans and something they called a 'meth burrito' was seized in Houston, CBS reports.
