Screen grabs from the video showing the 'World's Biggest Chicken'. Pic/YouTube
A video clip of a gigantic chicken has gone viral with many viewers claiming that it could just be a man wearing a chicken costume.
The video clip shows the fowl emerging from what appears to be the tiny hole of an elevated hutch. The bird then struts around.
It seems to be the size of a large dog and has an enormous quantity of plumage.
According to a report in Mirror, some viewers around the world have become unsettled regarding the possible existence of such a creature, with some comparing it to a "velociraptor".
The bird is believed to belong to the Brahmans breed thought to be the largest in the chicken family. Originally from India, these birds were bred for meat production, though the hens lay relatively decently and are great setters and mothers.
Bizarre! This chicken was 'arrested'!
In a bizarre incident in the UK last October, a chicken was taken into police custody after it was spotted crossing the road in the middle of rush hour. Officers managed to capture the lone bird and take it back to the station. The Facebook post of the bird's 'arrest' was shared by many netizens and became viral.
Pink chickens ran amok in this US city!
Owner Bruce Whitman of Portland played a prank on the residents of Oregon when he used food colouring, beet juice and Kool-Aid to dye his two chickens and let them free in a park to “make people smile.” He says he tucked the chickens into a tree to roost early one morning in a waterfront park, figuring they’d wake up to a good day with water nearby and bugs to eat, spread some smiles and he’d pick them up in the evening.
