A giant chicken is terrorising the internet, yeah you read that right [video]

Yup. there’s ginormous chicken out there and folks can’t cope.

A giant chicken is terrorising

Behold: The biggest chicken, quite possibly, ever. It’s not a stunt or a grown-up man walking around in a chicken costume, this bird is the real deal, folks.

It’s like something out of a b-grade horror movie from the 90’s and if you’ve ever tried messing with a normal-sized chicken you’d know these things can do some damage.

Meet “Merakli” (though “big ass chicken” or “Mufasa” would’ve been more fitting, I know). Fitim Sejfijai posted the video on Shepeztaria Decorative Facebook Page and the web’s gone clucking mad ever since.

Some believed that it was a set-up, but it is, in fact, the real deal. According to some Twitter users, the massive chicken is a brahma chicken (or the “King of all poultry” according to the Livestock Conservancy).

According to Mashable, Brahma chickens have been known to weigh around 13 to 14 pounds for females and 17 to 18.25 pounds for males. And while controversy exists about the origin 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”.

One Twitter user said he’d like a 2000-word statement on how this is even possible.

Others are just really scared:

Some are seriously considering becoming vegetarians:

Naturally, Twitter had all the jokes.


Maybe a Merakli Avengers spin-off sometime soon?
