We go way back

One of the farm animal sanctuary residents is a national celebrity. Her feet are anyway, and that beautiful pair of intricately-scaled legs and feet are seen on a regular basis by visitors to the The American Museum of Natural History in New York City, NY.

In May, we were contacted by an American Museum of Natural History animator who had found Steve’s “yesterday and today” piece about chickens, posted September 10, 2014. This ‘There be dinosaurs here’ essay included a photo of a Quarry Farm hen that the artist wished to use in a virtual reality game about T.rex.

Today, we received permission to share the video now that it has an online home. Check out those gorgeous gams under the “What did the skin of T.rex look like?” video in the T.rex “Senses and Appearance” section. Stay for the credits, too.

Don’t stop there, though. While you are on the site, you can dress up a T.rex (mine looked great in purple stripes and green feathers), take a quiz, learn what it is like to be a paleontologist, and more about dinosaurs and their closest living descendants.

Happy chickens rule.
