Before you ask. Yes, it’s real.

Twitter went crazy when a video of a massive chicken leaving its roost went viral over the weekend. And this could really prove chickens are long-distance relatives of dinosaurs.

Naturally, skeptics had their say, questioning the legitimacy of the colossal bird. But according to Mashable, some Twitter users say the chicken is a brahma chicken, a.k.a. the “King of all poultry” by the Livestock Conservancy.

And if you’re in the mood for some fried chicken, good luck taking down this bird.
