    A scientist is working right now to reverse engineer a chicken to revert back to a dinosaur, very interesting article I read today:

    I know! But this guy is working to do it, he has already managed to hatch some with tooth buds like baby alligators, how cool is that? Next up he is going to try to hatch some with tails.

    On a Discovery show about dinos they talked about this, and it was several years ago. Chickens have a dormant gene for teeth, as do most birds. They talked about doing this same thing. In the program they had already hatched some, though I might be mistaken. I was excited, more evidence for birds being at the very least related to dinosaurs.
