this hen born with four legs is rejected by all the others.

The four-legged hen lived on a farm in Kairi in far north Queensland. From birth, she lived with other hens. But her pen mates abused and attacked her because of her difference.

Jess Leeming posted the following message:

In addition, she also explained that the hen was dragging other legs on her back. However, this defect did not seem to affect her growth.

The hen’s condition was caused by a genetic defect called polymelia, which is a congenital defect of the limbs. This type of birth defect can occur in hens and is defined by the growth of additional limbs attached to different parts of the body. The exact cause of this congenital anomaly is unknown.
