New Zealanders are today trying to come to terms with the tragic death of Forzie the four-legged chicken, stuff.co.nz reports.
However, it was not the surplus legs which did for the month-old chick, owner Marlene Dickey believes. Rather, an extra anus has been fingered as the cause of his demise. Dickey said: "He developed two bottoms and I think he got glugged up."
Dickey admitted Forzie was "a bit of a laugh", and confirmed he was currently in the freezer awaiting stuffing and donation to Auckland Museum.
