Four-legged chicken hatches out in Brazil


Posted on Sunday, 26 March, 2017 | Comment icon 8 comments

Despite having two additional limbs, the young chick, which wasn't expected to live, is doing quite well.
The unusual specimen, which has since acquired the rather unfortunate nickname 'franken-chicken', was born back on March 14th at a farm in Mancio Lima in Brazil's Acre region.

At the time, the new arrival was not expected to survive for long, but a video recorded ten days later has since revealed that the young chick seems to have defied the odds and is doing fine.

The footage, which shows the chick happily running around its coop, can be viewed below.
