Here are the actual results generated by OpenCyc 0.7b
http://rhm.cdepot.net/knowledge/applications/SemanticWeb/OpenCyc/WhyChicken.html

For this iteration, I generated the input manually,
and used the OpenCyc browser to edit it.
This was doubly frustrating for me.

OpenCyc has strong type checking,
and made me declare everything before using it.

MKE inferences would have automatically generated
most of that input, since it is "obvious" by context.
