A video of a freakishly large rooster is going viral on social media.

It was tweeted out and has a lot of people debating whether or not the bird is real.

According to the Livestock Conservancy, this is indeed a real bird.

It's a Heritage Breed Braham Chicken to be exact. The Livestock Conservancy says this breed is often referred to as the "King of All Poultry" and can bulk up to more than 18-pounds!
