Arthur: "What've you got there, Bob?"
Bob: "We're not sure. We thought it was a bog-standard chicken until it started breathing fire. Looks like a serious breach of the Ban on Experimental Breeding to me."
Arthur Weasley and Bob discuss the enchanted chicken.[src]

A fire-breathing chicken was confiscated by Bob of the Ministry of Magic in 1995, as the creature was considered a major violation on the Ban on Experimental Breeding. The chicken was kept inside a large cardboard box, whose airholes would frequently light up due to the bird's fiery respirations. The box was likely enchanted to prevent it from catching fire. Bob took the creature to the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures.[1]
