At every opportunity, I encourage people to raise backyard chickens. They're easy pets and unlike any of our other domesticated animals, they provide breakfast for you on a daily basis, instead of the other way around. And so long as they aren't raising chicks or raised for cock fighting, they're quite docile and friendly. But do you know what's terrifying? A chicken tongue. We might have never known this horror if I didn't have such a curious man-child husband.
It looks like it wants to stab you.
On the plus side, if you have coyotes in your neighborhood (as we do) and a chicken with a face like this, you don't have to worry... looks to me like the bird can handle herself.
