Cretaceous fowl

If birds have evolved from dinosaurs, and I believe they have, then chickens most remind me of Tyrannosaurus Rex aka T-Rex. They both have no or useless arms, run like the wind when they want to, eat anything, use their tails for balance, and have the same feet!

After observing my hens, I have no trouble making the connection. Are you having trouble? Try imagining a chicken from the ant’s point of view.

  1. We learned about this connection between birds and dinosaurs on a DVD about dinosaurs that my kids watch frequently. My son, who was 2-1/2 when we got our first batch of chickens, named one "T-Rex the Dinosaur Chicken."
