That is literally the biggest chicken I have ever seen in my entire life.
(Side note: I immediately showed this to my Chinese grandmother next to me and she asked where she could get one for tonight’s dinner. Savage.)
Naturally, Twitter users had a few things to say about it.
I mean come on! Look at the size of that thing! How can this be real?
Oh, but it is…
Apparently, this breed of chicken is known as the “Brahma” chicken, often referred to as “King of All Poultry”. They’re known for their massive size and strength. Some have been documented to weigh as much as 18.25 pounds. They were produced in the U.S. from hens imported from China in the 1840s. They’re also known as “Shanghai Birds”.
