    Default Extra anus kills four-legged chick

    More compelling news.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Forzie the four-legged chicken will cluck no more.

    Forzie the four-legged chicken will cluck no more.

    The Te Uku-bred Barnevelder chick - hatched at Marlene Dickey's property at the start of last month - has died.

    But it wasn't the extra legs that led to its death, more likely an extra anus, Mrs Dickey believes.

    "He developed two bottoms and I think he got glugged up," she said.

    While she was surprised by Forzie's death - he weighed a "good pound of butter" and was gaining feathers slowly - it was not totally unexpected, she said.

    And it was fun while it lasted.

    "He was a bit of a laugh."

    Looking ungainly on its extra legs but twice as cute, the bird was an exception to the rule that chickens with defects are not normally born alive.

    He was found dead on Friday and is now in the Dickeys' freezer waiting to be stuffed.

    After he's been to the taxidermist, the family plan to donate the bird to Auckland Museum.

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.”

    To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise.

    Is there any point to this thread? Or to 'cut and paste' threads in general?

    They're amusing tidbits to the general diet of political discussion. Stuff whose spirit belongs to the Frontroom, but whose material sends it to the Backroom.

    Unless there is a wider point to be made, your double-barrel chicken belongs in neither.

    Headless chickens like us do belong in the Backroom, that much I understand.

    What are you getting at? Are you postulating that an STD killed the chicken?

    Anyway... the thing that made me cluckle in the thread was that it said that he weighed, "A good pound of butter," as opposed to a good pound of what?

    I would suspect that a similar defect would be voluntarily selected, if given the option, here in the United States. I admit that the population would be small, but one that exists nevertheless. The surgical requirements of this defect make it untenable given the surface area required, though a natural overgrowth of these areas would lend a hand.
