There's a video of this super-giant chicken on the internet, and here it is

(RNN) - So Sunday, this guy tweets a video of this colossal chicken. The big, gnarly thing comes squeezing its massive girth out of a hen house and he just keeps coming getting bigger and bigger and then there he is.

This really big chicken. 

So Twitter goes nuts and tens of thousands of tweeters go to work making all kinds of comments mostly along the lines of "Whoa. That's some chicken."

Certain chicken aficionados emerged from the hive mind to deduce that this is a Brahma chicken, which is a species of chicken that gets, you know, really super big.

It's a male chicken, making it a rooster, and Brahma roosters can grow up to 18 pounds, which is about three times as big as a run-of-the-mill chicken and a little more twice as big as a Pomeranian, which is a little dog that you can't eat. Well you could, but no. Just no.
