Curious. How many have seen birds with extras?

I haven’t seen one born with extras, but I did see a chick (like chicken, chick) that hatched with the organs on the outside. Very sad - but also very fascinating

Not the best pics because this particular bird is still fairly new to our yard and is learning we are not a threat to it, it’s skittish so I snapped pics from a poor video I had to take from inside the house lol.

This superstar has two tails!!!!
I'm a little late to this but this is all super fascinating! Such a beautiful bird and incredible that it has two tails! Also these pictures are perfect and thanks for sharing! Do you know what kind of bird it is? I'm so curious:)

I believe it's a Crested pigeon (there's a few different names for them)

In college I met chickens with an extra foot! One had a foot that looked like it was coming out it's back - so it must've had the whole extra leg from the femur down.
