It all started thousands of years ago. No one knows exactly where Hairy Chicken originated from, or if there was even an origin.
In some ways, Hairy Chicken can be thought of the Indian Chuck Norris. Hairy Chicken is elusive, powerful and legendary. The legend of Hairy Chicken originates from deep within the eastern region of India, from the times of the former Vanga Kingdom. Many parts of this territory are also presently considered Bangladesh. According to local Bengali folklore, lomasa eka roams the land. Stories of lomasa eka, or “the hairy one”, have been passed down from generation to generation. In the Bangla language, references to lomasa eka have traced back for centuries. The religion of Bangladesh before the arrival of the Muslims was a form of Hinduism. In some of the small sects, like মা পৃথিবীবাদ, or Mother Earthism, Hairy Chicken has even been depicted in local works of art.

While claiming most people won’t actually be able to see Hairy Chicken, unless of course Hairy Chicken wants to be seen.
