    The video is good, but the easiest place I found to do it is just after that part. When you first get to the marketplace with the chickens, it's a bit too chaotic - there's hordes of enemies shooting at you, the chickens are all spaced out, and most of them will be dead after the firefight. However, after the first battle, hang right and move into the next part of the market. At the end of the alley, there are five chickens together, and another two or three to your left. Just grenade the five, and then turn and shoot the ones next to you. Simples!

    The easiest way to complete this achievement is to find a wall or stack of caged chickens somewhere in the favela. These stacks (as demonstrated in the video) hold groups of five or more chickens. A well placed grenade should kill all of the chickens simultaneously, allowing you ten seconds to kill the remaining two needed. The video shows a strategy for the left-hand choke-point of the favela. This is an excellent place to try the achievement, although there are only 7 chickens in the immediate area; large gunfights may produce some unintentional casualties. If the game saves with chickens dead here, on the right hand side at the end of the corridor (and the merging of the path) is another stack of chickens. This stack holds six chickens, and has at least four more within a grenade blast of the stack. One grenade should do the trick. Happy hunting!

    Note: I take no claim of ownership of the video below. The video and its contents are property of Rooster Teeth and Infinity Ward, and it is used here solely for demonstration purposes.

    gbusYou don't see it in the video but there's another large stack of chicken crates on the ground behind the last chicken he shoots. Two nades should net you a lot of dead chickens if you want to do it quickly and extremely easily.

    Mr Slippy IVgbus is correct about the second stack of chickens; I have confirmed this on another playthrough. Any combination of the three (plus a few stragglers) is likely to net enough kills for the achievement.

    A short and simple video on how to get the "Colonel Sanderson" in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. You have to shoot 7 of the caged chickens in 10 or less seconds =P. You basically need good positioning for this one, as your pattern of chickens may be different. Keep 2 semi automatic ones and start on the chickens that are by themself, as you can mow down the ones in cages of 3-4 faster. For your own ease, you should shoot less chickens during the time when you have to clear the zone.
