Odd animals in Vietnam

After odd fruits in Vietnam, VietNamNet Bridge introduces odd animals that have appeared in Vietnam.

1. Four-legged cock in Quang Ngai


This is a special cock at the farm of Mr. Huynh Van Thu, in Tho Dong hamlet, Tinh Tho commune, Son Tinh district in the central province of Quang Ngai.

Thu bred this cock in August 2009, but until he vaccinated the cock, Thu discovered that it had four legs. The two additional legs are near the cock’s anus.

At first, all legs developed normally. Since the cock was over 1 month old, the two additional legs developed more slowly than the normal ones.

The cock has developed normally. It is now over 2.5kg in weight.
