Pa. Farm Discovers a Four-Legged Chicken
SOMERSET, Pennsylvania (AP) -- Henrietta the chicken was living inconspicuously for 18 months among 36,000 other chickens at Brendle Farms - until a farm foreman discovered she had four legs.
Farm-owner Mike Brendle was amazed by the discovery among his standard two-legged, egg-laying hens.
"It's as healthy as the rest," he said.
Brendle's 13-year-old daughter, Ashley, named the bird Henrietta after the discovery. It has two normal front legs and, behind those, two more feet. They are of a similar size to the chicken's front legs, but do not function. The chicken drags her extra feet behind her. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...=ENTERTAINMENT

Poor chicken.If I owned the egg farm I would make the poor little hen the 'mascot' and give her a nice free range life. I like chickens they are sweet birds.

She must be a runaway from the KFC labs.
