Giant Chicken is So Big it Looks Like a Man in a Costume!

Netizens have been buzzing about the giant chicken.  Is it a real chicken or just a man rising from the coup?  The uploader, LifesBook_CEO uploaded the video just this Sunday and he was asking people about the chicken. The chicken is bigger than any chicken in most parts of the world as it weigh around 18 pounds, whereas the normal chicken from the US only weigh 6 pounds.

The video is from a Facebook page in Kosovo, so it is speculated that it comes somewhere near there.  It looks like the chicken would not have the same fate as most chickens would have since the owner actually bothered to give it a name.

Its name is Merakli, but some people from Twitter still believe that it is just a man wearing a chicken costume.

Some people believe that it is a brahma chicken since that is the only breed that can grow to 18 pounds.

Brahma chickens  have been known to reach 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,” states Mashable.

According to livestockconservancy, it is the king of all chickens simply because it is the biggest among them.

The Brahma Chicken is appreciated for its great size, strength and vigor.  By 1901, some individual birds have been documented to have reached the incredible weights of 13 to 14 pounds for hens and 17 to 18 pounds for cocks – though 10 pounds hens and 12 pounds cocks were the rule,” writes livestockconservancy.
