Four-legged Chicken is Celebrated in Israel

VIN - Mea Shearim - A four-legged chicken born in a Jerusalem slaughter house has started a religious debate regarding its kosher label, which can only be determined once it is slaughtered, according to local media. The twelve-toed chicken awaited its fate in a cage on the floor of Yoel Kroish family’s slaughter house, waiting for local rabbis to decide whether or not the animal was kosher. If the legs are tied together, according to local rabbis, the chicken is not kosher. This they said could only be determined by slaughtering the animal. “I don’t know, for now we will give it to the rabbis to check if it is kosher or not. If it’s kosher, we will slaughter it, if not, we will see what to do,” Kroish said.

Members of the Eidah Hacharedus in Israel examine the foul leged chicken.
