Chicken Leg Socks Are A Thing And They Look Hilarious (19 Pics)

ADVERTISEMENT

We’ve all heard the ‘why did the chicken cross the road’ jokes hundreds if not thousands of times. Well, now you can actually look like a chicken when you cross the street.

With Halloween fast approaching (it’s less than two months away!), people are already picking out the costumes they’re going to wear this year. Which is why TheFound created a pair of clucking impressive socks just for the occasion. It’s something for bird-lovers and fowl-admirers to wear at their upcoming Halloween galas.

While I personally have never wanted to dress and look like poultry (my favorite animals are wolves, eagles, sea otters, and dragons), I’m sure that there are plenty of people out there who think chickens are cool.

Because we’re on the topic of chicks, here are some fun and unexpected facts about them! Do you know how many chickens live in the world? Take a guess. Yeah, well done, you were pretty close. The Smithsonian Magazine states that there are 25 billion chickens worldwide. That’s just around three chickens for each person alive today. Which, when I put it that way, doesn’t sound like a lot at all. I’d name my chickens Huey, Dewey and Louie, what about you?

While we’re all used to thinking that chickens can’t fly, that’s not entirely true. They can fly high enough to get over a fence or to fly up a tree. Which is far more than I’ve achieved flapping my arms at the office just now.

Chickens are omnivores, just like people. Sure, they’ll eat seeds. But they’ll also eat insects, lizards, and rodents — in fact, its diet is very similar to the fearsome carnivorous ‘werewolf’ grasshopper mouse that howls at the moon and has a thirst for blood like a parched vampire.

Baby chickens are called chicks, while female chickens are known as pullets. When they’re old enough to lay eggs, we start calling them hens. Meanwhile, male chickens are known as roosters or cockerels.

Also, did you know that female chicken biology is amazing? After hens become romantically involved with several roosters, they can choose which bird’s DNA they want to keep inside of them. This means they can always choose the strongest bird to father their fluffy offspring. What do you think of the chicken socks? Would you wear a pair yourself or gift them to a friend? What’s your favorite bird? Drop us a line down below.

Storytelling, journalism, and art are a core part of who I am. I've been writing and drawing ever since I could walk—there is nothing else I'd rather do. My formal education, however, is focused on politics, philosophy, and economics because I've always been curious about the gap between the ideal and the real. At work, I'm a Senior Writer and I cover a broad range of topics that I'm passionate about: from psychology and changes in work culture to healthy living, relationships, and design. In my spare time, I'm an avid hiker and reader, enjoy writing short stories, and love to doodle. I thrive when I'm outdoors, going on small adventures in nature. However, you can also find me enjoying a big mug of coffee with a good book (or ten) and entertaining friends with fantasy tabletop games and sci-fi movies.
