Fairday's Riddle: Nostalgic Peeps...

Hello, Riddlers! Can you guess our theme this week? Evolution is fascinating, and this is a great example of how life changes in time. ; ) ~ F

I cluck around, as you can see. Most likely dinner I shall be. I never keep what is mine, you snatch it up every time. If you knew where I came from, to coop me up would not be fun. Once upon history, my relations would have eaten thee. Erect back legs and teeth to bite, they were full of strength and might. I'm not so big anymore; back then I was a _______. 

Fill in the blank. Stop by Wednesday for the answer.

I gave you a clue!

  11. I know they've found feathered dinosaurs that they trace back to chickens. I have a book with a picture of a Jianianhualong tengi, so I cheated and looked up the name of one suspect.
