Evolution has really done a number on the chicken. Once upon a time, its ancestors were the most fearsome carnivores to roam the earth; nowadays, it's dawdling near the bottom of the food chain.
Admittedly, this has brought about some benefits for humans, but the great news is this is no longer confined to the eggs and meat part of the deal. Advances in 3D printing now mean that chicken accessories are a thing, and they are beyond anybody's wildest dreams. For a small fee, a fowl of your choice could be blessed with the arms of The Incredible Hulk.
When Twitter user @AnAngryOpussum stumbled across the perfect sale on Facebook, it was only fair that the internet got to know that such a beautiful thing exists. People couldn't place whether this was the perfect method of self-defence or the most unnecessary invention ever, driving a huge reaction.
Even better, it turned out there were a few bird owners out there who had tested them out, with predictably amazing results. Chickens may never return to their prehistoric, carnivorous glory, but thanks to technology they are now better accessorized than ever before.
