The egg shows the hen where to hatch.

An African proverb


The chicken (Gallus gallus, sometimes G. gallus domesticus) is a domesticated fowl. The hen is a female chicken, a rooster is a male chicken. The chick is a baby chicken.

The chicken is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals. With a population of more than 24 billion in 2003, there are more chickens in the world than any other bird. Humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food, consuming both their meat and their eggs.

Some genetic research has suggested that the bird likely descended from both Red and the Grey Junglefowl. Chickens are omnivores. In the wild, they often scratch at the soil to search for seeds, insects and even larger animals such as lizards or young mice.

Chickens in nature may live for five to eleven years depending on the breed.

Domestic chickens are not capable of long distance flight, although lighter birds are generally capable of flying for short distances, such as over fences or into trees (where they would naturally roost).
