Wishbones have been associated with good luck since the time of the Etruscans, who revered their chickens and viewed them as oracles. When a chicken died, the furcula was put out to dry in the sun. The preserved bone permitted continued access to the oracle, and became a hallowed remnant upon which people would place wishes - hence the modern term wishbone.
