Chinese chicken walks like a penguin

A very special chicken is impressing people in Jinhua, China, by walking upright like a penguin.

The owner of the chicken said he found him whilst on a business trip in eastern China. He bought the three-year-old from a local farmer for 10,000 Yuan (£960, $1,600) but is now donating it to a local zoo.

The chicken was brought back with his owner and has built himself quite a fan base strolling around the streets entertaining onlookers.

It is said to have contracted a cartilage disease when it was small, which caused its body to become malformed. After completing its quarantine, the chicken will be ready to meet visitors at the zoo.
