Scientists create chicken with the face of dinosaur via genetic augmentation 


Sixty-five million years ago, an asteroid is believed to have crashed into Earth. The impact wiped out huge numbers of species, including almost all of the dinosaurs.
One group of dinosaurs managed to survive the disaster. Today, we know them as birds.
The idea that birds evolved from dinosaurs has been around since the 19th century, when scientists discovered the fossil of an early bird called Archaeopteryx. It had wings and feathers, but it also looked a lot like a dinosaur. More recent fossils look similar.
But these early birds didn't look the same as modern ones. In particular, they didn't have beaks: they had snouts, like those of their dinosaur ancestors.

Barring Jurassic Park jokes, this sounds exciting! Another example of unextinction? Perhaps!

 

You know me, I'll be hanking for scientists to do this for Neanderthals.

For now Bhullar has no plans, or ethical approval, to hatch the snouted chickens. But he believes they would have been able to survive "just fine".

 

"These weren't drastic modifications," says Bhullar. "They are far less weird than many breeds of chicken developed by chicken hobbyists and breeders."

 

"The rest of the animal looked OK, but one needs to think about this carefully from an ethical point of view."

 

You know, I would buy them off him just to create a farm full of dino-chickens. I was really hoping he would hatch them.

First things first. McDonald's has yet to buy a dino-chicken.

Well, they weren't allowed to hatch, so that means they were still eggs.

 

Dino eggs. Scrambled dino eggs. Dino EggMcMuffin.

 

God, in 100 years, I'm gonna get so much shit over this, just you watch.

So, we'll be the species to eat dinosaurs for breakfast!!!

 

The dinosaurs will not know what hit them.... there is a new apex predator on the block, homo sapiens!!!

 

Yeah, the very predator who bought them back from extinction... just to eat them!

Literally.

 

They will eat us for breakfast, not that they need us for energy. It will be their turn.
