Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX instances are to be contained within Standard Avian Containment Chambers. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 which have norm germinated are to be contained within Standard Cryochambers, with larger instances contained within Large Biochambers. Any buds observed on SCP-XXXX-1 instances are to be opened within 12 hours of discovery.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an anomalous subspecies of domestic chicken. Despite testing revealing that its DNA is >99% similar, SCP-XXXX displays a radically different method of reproduction in comparison to the common chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus). Furthermore, all SCP-XXXX instances are female and genetically identical.

It lays eggs (designated SCP-XXXX-1) at a much lower frequency, creating one instance approximately every two weeks. Analysis of SCP-XXXX-1 instances' contents reveals similarities to the seed of a Vietnam Elm, albeit in much larger quantities. The SCP-XXXX instance will then attempt to bury SCP-XXXX-1.

If undisturbed, the SCP-XXXX-1 seed will germinate. The plant which emerges from the seed is initially indistinguishable from the Vietnam Elm, except for the fact that it has a massively increased rate of growth.

Three weeks after germination, SCP-XXXX-1 will reach its full size, at which point it begins to undergo a Reproduction Event. During a Reproduction Event, several large buds will form on the branches of SCP-XXXX-1. Within 24 hours, these buds will open, revealing fully grown SCP-XXXX instances that will be released from the plant.. If the bud is opened prematurely, an undeveloped, dead SCP-XXXX instance will be within.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered on 2013-06-13, when Karl Davidson, an American chicken farmer, attempted to sell fifteen thousand identical hens and the rights to an "magical egg plant" to a supermarket chain. Investigation of his home and garden revealed it to be overgrown with SCP-XXXX-1 instances. The whereabouts of Davidson are unknown and it it not known if, or how, he originally created SCP-XXXX.
