Massive 'hulk' chicken: Is it real or fake?

Footage of a huge chicken is astounding people across the world, prompting debates about whether it is real or fake.

It emerges from a chicken coop, and is so large that some people have suggested it's a person dressed in costume.

It's believed to be a breed of chicken known as Brahma, developed in the 1840s and known as "the King of all poultry".

The breed can grow to a metre tall and can weigh up to 4.5kg.          

The video went viral after Fitim Sejfijaj posted footage to Facebook of the bird at a farm in Albania, according to Channel Nine.
