    I need to ask BYC for a favor. I am taking an Evolution course and my professor stated that there were NO modern birds that had a wing claw. I remember somebody on BYC having a chicken that DID have a wing claw and provided pictures of the bird. With the photographer/owner's permission, I would like to share those pictures with my professor since he did not seem to believe me. Can somebody help me find that thread, please? Thanks!
