    That's interesting. I remember a member here once said he either saw or had a half grey half red cock like that. I've had some with different leg color but not feathers.

    Lino if you have the money to burn, you can always CLONE. Also gene splicing I would think could do the trick. Follow your dreams Lino.

    the explanation: basically what would have been two animals, being now combined into one animal during the reproduction process.

    Yes, but instead of "two" things being joined at birth, it's two things becoming "one" during gestation and being born as one individual. A crazy freak of nature, but it obviously does happen, there are numerous examples. A fascinating situation to be able to see, even on video. Thanks for sharing.

    Re: Rare Phenotypes

    A few years ago one of my hens hatched her chicks off and one didn’t hatch, I opened it up and I had conjoined chicks. They were attached at the abdomen, I kick myself now because I didn’t take a pic. Has anyone ever had this happen?

    we had a chick with 4 legs. We tried to baby it just for a conversation piece but it only lived 4 days.

    Re: Rare Phenotypes

    KFC have been breeding chickens with 4 wings for years. Google search will find it for you.............

    Ive seen only a couple chicks from one egg, they weren't joined though, didn't live long.

    I think LaBlue was secretly trying to keep his 4 legged one alive for a special dinner LOL............

    Lino, my friends split was nothing special, he did keep him and try to breed more, hes had some odd color patterns since but no complete splits. He has plenty running around with different colored legs though. Like 1 yellow/ 1 slate etc..........
    Also some with different colored eyes, 1 bright red/orange and the other side deep/dark red. I guess hes got something mixed up there in his chickens lol..........
