FREAK CHICKEN

A freak chicken, with four legs was hatched out with a bunch of chicks of Clyde Rosenfelt last Tuesday. The chick has apparently not as yet been affected by being a quadrapede, instead of a bipede as is usually the case with chickens. It is just as spry and healthy as the two–legged ones. The additional legs are of a different color of skin than the two, which are of use to the chick. The back two legs are dragged about by the chick, and it apparently has no control of them.

The Farnam Echo 53(42):1, Thursday, 24 June 1937
