The brief BBC report says Adeel Ayub, 30, is also accused of slashing co-workers coats and smashing eggs in his bizarre workplace transgressions.
He is due in court on Dec. 15.
The BBC did not say what punishment Ayub could face if convicted of the fowl crimes, nor did the report suggest any possible motive. One more detail missing from the story: whether Ayub was allegedly licking packaged or unpackaged poultry.
Ayub worked for the Asda supermarket chain when a co-worker shot the alleged video evidence in 2005, which was then handed over to police.
Asda was wholly owned, until just last month, by Walmart.
