    [​IMG] WOW!!! super freaky. i think i would let it grow and see how it does. just out of curiosity. as long as it looks to be able to function normally. wouldn't want it to suffer.

    WOW! That is amazing!
    I'm no expert for chickens, but going by other animals, if it's not uncomfortable, then let it live. As long as it seems happy and healthy, it should be fine....
    And it could be your new farm mascot if it makes it [​IMG]

    Ones with extra limbs can stay alive. there has been reported incidents in cattle and they lived to an old age just fine.

    Just enjoy the chick!

    Wow [​IMG]
    I personally wouldn't cull if it seems healthy otherwise, it sure doesn't look sickly.
    I would keep it for a novelty but wouldn't breed it
    would love to see pics as it grows if you keep it [​IMG]

    OMG that is the cutest thing I have ever seen. How unique!!! I hope you find the help you seek. I would leave it but I really don't know much about chickens. I am new to it.

    If it seems healthy and happy let it live. It may be just fine and live a long happy life. Looks healthy to me. [​IMG]
