    Not too long ago I read a story about how they found Trex genetic code and after analasis decided that its closest living relative was Chickens.
    Now I have come across this story about Velociraptor .
    this story is not as closely releated to chickens but, it does further the evidence that birds evolved from dinosaurs, Raptors in paticualar.

    Im still waiting for nature artists to catch up with science and start depicting dino's with the feathers they probably had.
