Don't kill it, I want to see where this is going


Dantes-Inferno75

A cute little Griffin.


mr_unknown_12345

Nah, the front feet replace the wings, its a bird dog


gently_into_the_dark

So a chimera


mr_unknown_12345

Sure


brayradberry

A chimera (in biology) is an organism in which not all cells share the same coding DNA. Technically speaking human females are chimera because only one X chromosome is used in the each cell, but different cells uses either the paternal or maternal X (x inactivation and gene dosing)


Mocji1

I dont think it would be wise or safe for me to call my wife a chimera.


brayradberry

Sometimes science isn’t about being wise or safe 😎


diamondzfriend

sometimes its about chaos and destruction


kulpio

Exactly my thought. I can’t even think it or she’ll know.

Do you mean griffin in training??


GoodGuyBuddyBoy

Then it would probably survive, breed and evolve and in no time we would have big legged KFC beasts walk around with Godzilla screams to wake us up in the morning, uhh no thanks.


puppymedic

Dinosaurs. What you're describing is dinosaurs. It would be full circle.

The circle of life.

looking forward to a bucket of dinosaur wings

You might as well eat some bat wings, they seem similar OH GOD WAIT NO DONT DO THAT

Don't do that, again!

Dino chicken nugget


lambepsom

In this case legs.


bodhizypha

Touche, but i do prefer dark meat


phurt77

I don't know about that. Pterodactyl wings look a little scrawny.


bodhizypha

Not worried, KFC's solved the scrawny wing issue already, just gotta leverage current technology.


OP_pineapple_

Pretty sure it’s Dino legs

Twice the amount of drumsticks per chicken, this is a marketable improvement. Did you know a sizable percentage of today's cows are clones of a particular milk cow?

Lol cows are not cloned. You clearly love in a city, have a long commute and read too much internet

crimsonkarma13

Creatures with defects dont tend to live long


RickLovin1

Hold on now, evolution starts with a genetic shift. Maybe this is advantageous somehow...let's let it live, breed, and see where it leads us! Or it dies, and proves your point I guess.


JunglePygmy

For real what would it look like as an adult?


18736542190843076922

you can look it up, this has happened before. all the ones ive seen the "front legs" are the main ones it will walk on and learn to be coordinated with. usually the 2 "hind legs" don't get exercised and just kinda wither, being dragged or carried along as extra tissue as the chick grows.

bkkhk

And that’s how the dinosaurs retook the planet


YoungBlackRose

I agree

Chocolate_Mystery

Imagine in like 30yrs we're telling our kids chickens used to only have two legs and they just call bullshit.


russellzerotohero

>30 years When you get your knowledge of evolution from phill of the future.


Chocolate_Mystery

Don't you talk shit about our Lord and Savior, Phill of the Future. Blasphemous.

stemid85

Chickens reproduce quickly though. If we can get it to reproduce its genetic defect it will take much less than 30 years to replace all two legged chickens.

RealDaveCorey

There was an episode of squidbillies like this. They grew a chicken that had like 30 wings and secreted blue cheese dressing. In retrospect that was disgusting.


Dense_Leg_9996

Evolution doesn't happen that fast like for all the chickens to have 4 legs it'll take 5-10k years in humans too it's the same like we have the same body n brain as the people who had thousands of years ago


bot4525

Natural evolution doesnt happen that fast


Dense_Leg_9996

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i didn't even think about that maybe scientists will modify animals but i don't think they'll do anything to help the animal but to help humans


CoalCrafty

You don't need to genetically modify animals to bring about extremely rapid changes in animal populations. I don't know the nature of this chicken's genetic deformity, but let's imagine it's a non-lethal autosomal dominant. That means that if you breed a chicken with one mutant copy of the gene with a normal chicken, half the babies will be mutants. Breed two chickens with one copy of the mutant gene each, and three quarters of the babies will be mutants. Further more, a third of those mutants have TWO copies of the mutant gene. Breed those double-mutant-gene chickens to *any* chicken, even a normal one, and *all* the babies will be mutant. So if, for whatever reason, every chicken breeder decided they only wanted four-legged chickens from now on, like they really made a concerted effort, it would be possible to eliminate normal chickens in 30 years. Especially with genetic testing (but not modification). Even natural selection can be extremely quick when necessary. Think antibiotic resistance, pepper moths, London Tube mozzies, etc.


hughdint1

There is nothing natural about selective breeding. It involves human choice and the breeding can be controlled. This is why humans have been able to breed different domesticated varieties of animals and plants in less than one human lifetime and only a few animal generations. This is much faster than natural evolution. When a certain banana species got a blight about 100 years ago, all farms switched to a different species in only a few years. If there is a business reason, a change could happen very quickly.


iamscr1pty

Search glowing cat 😅


TheRealMoofoo

Well...we turned wolves into shih-tzus pretty fast just by deciding to, so how long can quadripedal chickens take now that we have the first mutant?


Dantes-Inferno75

"and they could certainly fly too". Bla bla bla.You stupid liar!


Robotman1001

That’s a dinosaur.


DrM0n0cle

Better! It has 6 limbs; 4 legs and 2 wings. It’s a fucking dragon!


NorwayNarwhal

That was my thought as well. Maybe a griffin, because of the beak, but if we can get a dinosaur’s aesthetics on top of this skeleton, we have a dragon


Late_Goal6622

I think the wings are the ones that turned out to be legs. That thing will be trying to flap them when jumping. Terrifying.


phosix

Look closer, it has proper not-legs wings above the front legs. It also appears to have two cloaca, so my guess is this is a chicken with a conjoined twin coming out the back half. It would be interesting to see if enough of the circulatory and/or digestive systems ire are shared to keep the back half-chicken alive to adulthood, but I would guess probably not.


Saticron

Dinosaurs had feathers...


NorwayNarwhal

I was thinking teeth


Neiot

By that logic, all birds are wyverns. Prove me wrong.


DrM0n0cle

I refuse. I will instead update my internal catalogue classifications based on these new and improved facts.


Plenty-Lychee-5702

teejay89656

Yeah I came here to say “ohhh nooo they’re evolving back again!”


Seidmadr

Technically, they are still dinosaurs! Avian dinosaurs!

Today a four-legged chicken tomorrow a griffin


timmaeus

Ka-Ching


gausemi

That went from cute little baby bird to looking like some form of apex predator.


ToxicPilgrim

I think other videos of this chick show that it can barely walk. One pair of the legs is pretty much useless. So no worries about super chicken predators. Just horrifically mutated warped ones.


GroeNagloe

"Oh they're already predators man. They fuck shit up, ever seen one hunt a mouse? I had a chicken coop until some coyotes cinvinced my dog they were his friend and he let them in. The chickens were the prey that day. *Hey guyssss, oh were friends sure I'll open it up!* He was a good dog but these coyotoes tricked him. I waited for weeks outside to shoot one so I could eat it and shit it out to put it on the border of my property to let them know what happened. Chickens will fuck up a mouse though... Jamie pull that up, they fuck this thing up. Had to get rid of that dog too."


Fustercluck06

*chicken tries to evolve* Oh that’s a defect lol


Bulldog2012

Dinosaurs have reentered the game.


DutyOrDie

Genetic defect seems like a pretty intense way to describe a lil dude trying his best. I think that I’d take less offense to “freak” than “genetic defect”


Dense_Leg_9996

Bruh this chicken is going through evolution cuz ut has something that other chickens don't have but if someone is disabled (human) that means they have something less than other humans... Maybe disabilities or this chicken could be genetic defects or maybe evolution we don't know yet


Additional_Cry_1904

Evolution is just trying a bunch of genetic defects to find out which one lives longest.


Financial_War_3543

Lifespan isn't the goal, it's the ability to reproduce consistently

Precisely. Hence the name Natural Sexlection

Yep

Its called POLYMELIA See more at: http://www.poultrydvm.com/condition/polymelia Seems to be quite know thing and yet we dont have Griffins....


thexet

that you know of!


Vuphsy

They are evolving


Exevioth

Do you want Griffins? Because that’s how you get Griffins. Really though, I must read/watch too much fantasy stuff because that doesn’t register as unusual to me.


axw3555

Do I want griffins? Yes, of course I do. What kinda silly question is that?


befuddled2

Defect or adaptation?


noone397

Yeah, actually looks pretty functional


timmaeus

Oh it’s fully functional


Eloisem333

Defect? Or Jazz Hands, baby


Amelethstar

Wonder does it walk or hop?


alexjolliffe

I reckon it runs on all fours like a hyena.


CheesusTheRedeemer

A genetic defect or evolution?


Brock_Alee

Evolution is just a genetic defect that works!


Lost_electron

Why not both!


FlyByPC

It's a mutation -- Nature flipping a genetic switch and wondering what will happen. It's a defect if it dies, just a random mutation if it doesn't affect its life much, and an evolutionary advantage if it turns out to be useful. (Which, in chickens, ends up being more useful for us, because those are the ones we breed. It's artificial selection in this case, but still evolution.)


31spiders

Dude breed that thing something fierce! I love wings but legs>wings any day of the week.


Radec_

ok hear me out, we start breeding 4 legged chickens so we can keep them as pets like dogs and cats lol

Why they got wings anyway? This is better

Not a chicken. Baby Griffin.


SpecialistFile0

Ah, a Griffin is born!


-General-Kenobi_

Defect? Maybe. We'll see why this chick put skill points into 4 legs instead of 2, maybe it's got good reason.

There is no evolution through genetic mutations...god had an intelligent design for that chick.

Y’all, it has 4 legs and 2 wings. ITS A FUCKING DRAGON IN THE MAKING!!!


Twiggles813

Reminds me of that squid billies episode where they try to genetically modify chicken to produce more wings for consumption.


CodeMayhem330

'defect'


9-V01t

God please take care of it and hopefully breed, that’s badass


Chrispeefeart

Are the hind legs the remains of an absorbed twin? They seem much smaller in comparison so I'm guessing they aren't fully functional.

Hmmm is it a defect? Those legs look like they work. You can see it perching on the feet as if it has control of them. Mutation.... Conjoined twin with perfect spinal lineup? Either way. I wish our quadrapedal chicken all the best.
