The Daily Telegraphnames the chicken as Merakli.
Merakli is a 'Brahma' chicken, a special American breed which can weigh as much as 18 lbs.
So high up in the pecking order of oversized beasties is this chicken, that some doubt the video is genuine.
According toMashable, the oldest existing post of the video appeared on Friday, on a Facebook page (above) devoted to massive chickens.
Of course, only one farming broadcaster comes to mind.
You have big sheds that nobody's allowed in and inside these sheds are 20ft high chickens! http://t.co/JtwSlBVb1S — Alan Partridge (@Alan Partridge)
