That's a Gallo Kelso. One of your neighbors has fighting cocks and that's an escapee.

That is a normal game rooster, just like dogs ,horses or cattle , chickens come in many sizes colors. Games are pretty chickens but sooner or later every game rooster I have had decides he thinks he is the boss and tries to prove it to me . Which lands him in hot water............................................................................................... ............................................... with some spices and dumplings

Yours on your pic is not that bad either. I first thought that your pic is fake but then i found this



I was trying to guesstimate the weight of the huge chickenzilla on the railroad but i realized that i don't know how wide a foot of a normal 5-7lbs chicken is.
Assuming that the guys in front are 6 feet tall i ended up with around 67 feet wide for the big chicken foot.

I went for 1/6th foot wide for a foot of a 7lbs chicken. Assuming that the relationship between the weight of a chicken and the foot size is linear, with that the big chickenzilla should weight around 2835 lbs

When I was a kid, in St. Petersburg, Florida, there was place called Webb's City that referred to itself as world's most unusual drug store. On the top floor they had a number of exhibits including a mermaid and a dancing chicken. I heard that they made the chicken dance by sending pulsed electrical shocks to the wire grid that served as a floor of the chamber it was in.



PETA would never approve. I don't recall the circular platform, so they may have later substituted a rotating platform for the grid.
