I suppose the Gray Area is the best place for this, but won't be offended if it is swept off to Skunk Works.

Please note: The following thread is highly speculative, but my husband is looking for answers. This thread is mainly for people who live in the Kansas City area, but I suppose it doesn't have to be solely about KC.

In Kansas City, there is a rock DJ named Johnny Dare. He's very well known in the area. I used to listen to him but I've switched to a different station. My husband, however, listens to him almost daily.

Apparently, Johnny Dare has had a few different shows where he has talked about a place in Kansas City that was engineering livestock in the 80's. The only thing my husband can remember is Johnny talking about 6 foot tall chickens. I guess whenever this topic is brought up on the show they get a slew of callers who remember this place and remember seeing the animals.

I cannot find a thing about it anywhere. I can't even find an audio of one of the shows that featured it. So, no sources, sorry.

I'm posting this with the hope someone on ATS is from the area and has either heard one of the shows or is one of the people that remember this place. I've thought about emailing Johnny Dare but I have emailed him in the past for work and never get a reply. I also don't want to sound like an idiot I guess lol

If you don't live in the area, but know of some similar information, please share! I expect some flaming, which is fine, I have no idea what the truth is. I just ask that people are respectful with their comments.

I'm just trying to imagine a six foot tall chicken.

It would be very cool. I'd be eating a chicken leg like Fred Flintstone!

I'm going to say it must have been a joke / hoax. You said he was a DJ when was this reported maybe it was a Halloween thing.

The problem with claims like this is I think it would have leaked by now. Obviously you would need a team of people working on the project. You don't think there would be a disgruntled employee somewhere or just somebody who would blab just for the fame?

Could be true but.......

I'm thinking a 6 foot chicken would have problems standing.
Maybe they dressed up ostriches?

Ha! Never seen that, thanks. Looks like quite the movie.

As far as a Halloween prank, I don't think so. Could be a joke. I haven't heard the shows myself so I can't tell you what kind of context the info was given in. I can't tell you if the callers sounded serious or not, I just know there are a lot of them. Hopefully one of them will be reading soon and can tell us.

I'd laugh if it were just Ostriches and people mistook them for chickens.

This thread reminded me of this...

One of the earliest joke pictures of the interwebs?

Reminded me of this:

To the OP, did a search and couldn't find anything other than a bunch of photoshopped pics..

It does sound like a joke, or perhaps the DJ was talking about something else and you mis-interpreted it?

Probably former Nazi's working in one of our research labs.

One of the reasons they were working on livestock is they want to create new life forms they can patent. They kill off all the others and somebody collects free money for eternity off the life forms they created.

Cloned livestock now is FDA approved to eat in America. Plan is coming together....

Made a new email address and sent an email to the DJ to clarify. As said though, it is near impossible to get any kind of response. I imagine he gets hundreds of emails daily and just drops the majority in the trash bin.

Omg, do you know how bad that 6ft cock would # that guy up? It would rip him, and tear him and ... wait. Yeah, that still applies for a 6 ft rooster ha ha. All joking aside, chickens are pretty nasty little creatures when they want to be. Ever seen a cock fight? Now imagine a 6ft tall rooster having at your flesh.

When you take into consideration the chicken is a direct descendant of the T-Rex, it's easy to imagine, lol.

Might have also been an Emu

The United States first imported emus between 1930 and 1950. However, commercial emu farming in the U.S. did not begin until the late 1980's.

Well knowing Johnny's personality and profession it is quite possible the six foot tall chickens were a joke.

I didn't know that Kansas had any emus until today. And now I know we have quite a few

Genetic altered animals is not a far fetched concept. Many reports of this occuring, but no definite proof left behind. Go to ( Southwest Radio Church), review the books offered, and contact Mr. Hutchings if needed. He will point you to several people that study this and offer great books about the issue. Pastor Hoggard is one of the authors I have met, and been to siminars of him. Thier is alot about Transhumanism and the like. I urge you to do your research. This is not a fake issue, it appears to show alot of probable cause that this genetic mutations are being enginereed. Wow a 6 ft. chicken that just blows my mind.

Definitly real. Except the chickens looked more like 4 feet tall and then they had 8 foot cows. It was an experimental lab called Jansen something. About all the high school kids in the greater kansas city area would go and try to see them out in the barn yard during the 70's. I saw both chickens and cows.
