A man from Meigs County has a new four-legged friend, but it's not your typical pet--it's a baby chicken.

Take a look at the pictures of the chick (below). It was born in Meigs County, Ohio.

The owner, Robert Holmes, calls the baby chick "four wheel drive." It was hatched on April Fools Day.

Robert Holmes says a customer at his feed store first noticed 4-wheel's extra legs. Holmes raises chickens to sell their eggs.

He gets about 200 baby chicks a year, but for him, there's no doubt 4-wheel drive is a one of a kind.

"I've never seen nothing like this in a chicken before," said Holmes. "Seen it in cows, deformaties in humans, but never in a chicken before."

Holmes says four wheel drive is so special he'll be treated more like a pet.
