Oh God, why is it so big? - From Mashable
It just happens to have the legs of a Tyrannosaurus wearing flares, okay?
According to some Twitter speculators, the monstrous chicken overlord is a brahma chicken A.K.A.
the "King of all poultry" according to the Livestock Conservancy.
Brahma chickens have been known to reached the weights of 13-14 pounds for females and 17 to 18.25 pounds for males.
While controversy exists about the origins of the breed, the Conservancy writes that the breed was "developed in America from very large fowls imported from China via the port of Shanghai." This particular giant dog-sized chicken seems to belong to a guy called Fitim Sejfijaj, who posted the video to a Kosovo-based Facebook group called Shpeztaria Dekorative, which translates to "decorative poultry." If Facebook's translator is anything to go by, the chicken's name seems to be "Merakli" (not "Brutus the killer" or "Bigass Mother Clucker" as you might imagine), and it's receiving plenty of praise from fellow chicken lovers.
