A non-chicken keeping friend of mine recently sent me a YouTube link to an amateur video of an unusually large chicken and asked me if this video was “‘for real?'” I clicked the link and watched an enormous rooster emerge from a coop in a fenced pen area. To say that this bird was big is an understatement – this white rooster caught on film was a veritable beast!

My friend asked me what breed of bird this monster rooster was. I guessed it was a gigantic, full-sized (standard) Cochin rooster with a Columbian feather pattern. Wrong!
A little on-line research revealed this very big bird is a Brahma breed rooster named Merakli. The original YouTube video of Merakli stated that this beast of a chicken is located in Kosovo. Apparently they raised their chickens mega-sized there!
