Chicken Has Human Face

"The hen has no bill whatsoever, but in it place is a perfectly formed nose. Beneath the nostrils is a mouth and chin, but in place the feathers lay parted and perfectly smooth. The cheeks are puffy, but rosily red. The hen was purchased by Mr. Johnson who sent it to a taxidermist in Chicago, where it was mounted. He has received an offer of $50 for the freak, but declines it." - from "Chicken Has Human Face," Eau Claire Leader (January 12, 1908).
