Safe Withdrawal Rate for living like a chicken

I wonder what the SWR is for living like a chicken...for normal chicken lifestyle and for the same supported by ibonds. I think you could get by on chicken feed.

Cooped Up
A Fijian man who was raised by chickens has been given a second chance at life. Sunjit Kumar was locked in a chicken coop for several years as a young boy and, deprived of contact with humans, he adopted the habits and mannerisms of his feathered friends. When Kumar escaped, he was taken to a hospital where he was confined for 20 years. Kumar, now 32, was recently discovered by Elizabeth Clayton, president of a local Rotary Club, who is teaching him to walk and speak like a person. "He was perching, he was picking at his food, he was hopping around like a chicken. He'd keep his hands in a chickenlike fashion, and he'd make a noise ... like the calling of a chicken," Clayton said. She said Kumar has made "remarkable progress."
