Forget what you think you know about poultry (which isn't a lot, we imagine) - there is a rooster in China that walks like a penguin.
The three-year old fowl, bought by a businessman from a farmer for £950 after spotting it on a work trip, has become something of a celebrity in the province of Jinhua, and its owner is now donating the rare specimen to a local zoo so that everyone can see its irregular ambling.
The odd condition is believed to have been brought on by cartilage disease contracted in the rooster's younger days. So can we expect to see more barrel-chested fowl roaming global cities?
Don’t count all your chickens before they’re hatched.
