* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Before the official ''Garfield'' website reran the comic, the majority of the strips were archived [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/otherpeople2/usacres1.html here]], courtesy of PlatypusComix. Now it's only good for the [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/otherpeople2/chickens3.JPG original version]] of the [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/1986-10-13 October 13, 1986 strip]], the covers to the collections and the final few Sunday strips, which Paws has declined to republish.

* ContestWinnerCameo: The contest [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/otherpeople2/chickens3.JPG instigated here]], and the winning submission was "Max, the Skateboarding Bird". He only lasted one week, [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/otherpeople2/chickens25.JPG but he seemed to be intended as a recurring character]].

Nothing is known about their personalities who why they never appeared in the strip.
** ...This is only guessing but one possible reason Jodie the horse never made it, was because in the same year, 1986, when the U.S.Acres strip was made, there was also a movie and new cartoon series of (first generation) "My Little Pony 'N Friends" made. No idea why Chuck never made it, though.
** The name was probably too morbid. Think about it. [[IncrediblyLamePun Ground Chuck.]]
** Those two characters appeared in the back of 1991, Orson's farm Annual.
