    That tells us that dinosaurs evolved to chickens.

    Uh oh, I hope they don't come back for revenge for us eating them for so many years. [​IMG] To the TC, are you sure that's a toenail? It looks more like a bone spur to me. It looks like the chicken had another wing trying to grow on top of that wing, too. Mutant chicken! It looks like a reject from some really weird science experiment. [​IMG]

    Quote:That's really odd. It's like it wasn't sure if it was trying to grow a second set of wings or a second set of feet. Are you sure you want to eat that? I'm actually surprised that the meat company let it be packaged that way. On the other hand, it is extra meat, so I guess they got to charge more. [​IMG]

    You know with the mass of chickens that they are housed with they probably grow those for extra defense [​IMG] Never know what the chicken behind you would do [​IMG]

    Didn't someone have a chick awhile ago that had wing claws? I'm pretty sure I had seen that. It would make sense---some birds have them.
