Philip "Chicken Man" Testa briefly led the Scarfo crime family in Philadelphia. Testa's nickname is believed to have come from his involvement in a poultry business. He had a heavily pockmarked face, caused by a bad case of chicken pox, which is also thought to be one of the reasons for his nickname. Testa was killed by a bomb in a mob assassination.
