Even two extra legs may not help this chicken outrun the butcher's knife. Jerusalem slaughterhouse owner Yoel Kroish says he's seen a chicken with three legs but never four. And he's not yet certain whether he'll get the green light to butcher the hen. SOUNDBITE: Yoel Kroish, owner of slaughterhouse, saying (Hebrew): "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." And if the chicken does run foul of the rabbis' commandment, at least it will provide double the drumsticks.
