As per physical evidence presented to us by Mr. Simon and Steve Santos of the highly informative and utterly credible Video48 site and Unang Labas site, they present absolute proof of the existence of one distinct example of an Ante Extant Gallus Gallus as early as 1952 right here in the Philippines. The proof was chronicled by the late writers Clodualdo Del Mundo and Mars Ravelo, and illustrated by Elpidio Torres.
Ante Extant Gallus Gallus, as revealed in the Elmer documents of 2006-2008, are chickens that have gotten human intelligence and consciousness before the great awakening of February 3, 1979. Indications of such early examples are few and far in between. The earliest so far has been found in a petroglyph discovered in the Linga Caves of Laguna by Croatian anthropologist Araz Macan on December 10, 1963. Carbon dating the petroglyph conclusively dates it to 21,000 years ago.
Due to the highly controversial nature of the subject matter, and the possibility that such a revelation could agitate the Filipino population in the early 50s, the discovery was kept secret. Instead, the story was released as a fanciful tale entitled \”TEXAS\” in a local comic book and was later adapted into a movie starring Pancho Magalona and Linda Estrella.
In the tale, it is said that the Ante Extant Gallus Gallus was the chicken of St. Peter sent to earth to stop cockfighting. Little is known what truly happened to the true specimen. As was the case with all early speaking chickens in highly religious countries, it was most likely killed, buried, and quickly forgotten.
