Rooster walks upright like a penguin

Report & Video by Claire Lomas

This very special rooster has impressed people in Jinhua, China, this week 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 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 many 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 rooster will be ready to meet visitors at the zoo.
