The minute-long video that somehow made its way onto Twitter was shared by 35,000 users as of Monday evening, and left thousands of people with a long list of questions: Is it a child in a chicken costume?
Often referred to as the “King of All Poultry,” Brahmas are large chickens with feathers on shanks and toes that come in three color varieties — light, dark and yellowish-beige.
They’ve been known to reach incredible weights of 13 to 14 pounds for hens and 17 to 19 pounds for cocks.

Sejfijaj shared the same video days before the video went viral on Twitter Sunday, writing “Shikim te kendshem merakli” in Albanian, which in English means “Enjoy watching Merakli.”
