I find this variety of chicken hilarious, because they perpetually look like they had a terrible shock. I've never seen a chicken like this in the US, and I laughed when I first saw this one.

Description

Unripe/immature fruit. Fruits take a year to mature. Fruits ripen and fall January-March while trees flower simultaneously. This species has distinctive pink and white flowers and retains more lower branches than most other large tree species in the area. Those characteristics along with the enormous melon-sized fruits make it one of the easiest species to identify.
