Reference Number: DCDL-0002279

The scene shows a woman in a supermarket looking in amazement at a huge pile of chicken legs from Te Uku. Refers to the hatching of a four-legged chicken at a Te Uku chicken farm. The breeder, Marlene Dickey, says that it is a Barnevelder chicken, a Dutch breed. Hamilton vet Keith Houston said in the Dickey's chick case, stem cells in the egg had divided into four instead of two, meaning an extra pair of legs.
