If birds are the living relatives of dinosaurs, then this chicken’s practically a T. Rex.
A clip of a giant clucker strutting its stuff became a social media sensation over the weekend because it looked like Foghorn Leghorn had come to life.
Most of the commenters on social media and on reddit were torn between refusing to believe it was real, and noting that it was likely an especially large breed called a Brahma chicken, or in this case a Brahma rooster. According to the Livestock Conservancy, such creatures generally weigh around 12 pounds, but have been known to reach 18 pounds.
Am I the only person wondering why this chicken is so damn big 🤔🤔🤔 pic.twitter.com/ZIWmEL2h2w— LifesBook_Ceo (@LifesBook_Ceo) March 19, 2017
