Poultry In Motion is not a reference to a Snowdown parade entry of silly people in chicken suits. Nor is it a political reference to the value of allowing egg-producing chickens in downtown-Durango backyards. 

Nope. Poultry in Motion is a new take-out food establishment that sells "broasted" chicken. This is a trademarked process of

creating pressure-cooked, deep-fat fried chicken in a special fryer.

The Broaster Co. makes the stainless-steel fryer, a machine that looks like a top-loading clothes washer with a lock-down lid. It also markets the cooking process. If you want to sell Broaster chicken, you have to follow the company's preparation instructions and sign an agreement that you will cook chicken only in a Broaster Co.-manufactured pressure fryer and only using Broaster's Chickite marinade and Slo-Bro seasoning. Only then can you call your chicken Broaster.

Poultry in Motion offers chicken-only or chicken meals, which include coleslaw, broasted spuds or sweet potatoes and rolls. Barbecue beans and spud dip are also available. A four-piece chicken meal, which feeds one to two people, costs $10.75.

The restaurant opened in January in the College Plaza at College Drive and Eighth Avenue. The shop is open evenings only, from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m. Orders take about 15 to 20 minutes to prepare, and should be ordered ahead at 259-1415 and picked up.
