We Tried To Throw a Cucco Into a Lava Pit in Zelda: BOTW

Here at Dorkly, we like to play videogames - so much so, that we've recently started streaming occasionally on Twitch.tv (come check us out!). And in a recent day of goofing around in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Tristan Cooper (bigtime Zelda fan) and Tony Wilson (bigtime Maniac Cop 2 fan) decided to see if they could accomplish the most difficult task in any Zelda game: actually destroy a Cucco.

For those of you who are unaware, Cuccos are essentially invincible deities in the world of Zelda - no matter how many times you slash them with your sword, they will not only NOT die, but they will summon their brethren to swarm you until YOU die. Basically, they are not to be trifled with.

The plan was (seemingly) simple: take a Cucco from a nearby village or stable, and drop it into the lava surrounding Death Mountain. There are no Cuccos that are super-near the place Gorons call their home, so no matter what, just GETTING a Cucco to that area would be difficult enough: contending with random enemies along the way and environmental challenges like rain and lightning.

They tried 3 times over the course of an hour - but were they successful? We would tell you, but it's better to just watch the journey yourself:
