A Giant Chicken Is Making Everyone On Twitter Freak Out

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.

It’s not clear how big this bird is, but it’s clearly a big bird.

Here’s some of the reaction:
