There are more chickens in the world than any other species of bird.
The chicken is a domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the Red Junglefowl. It is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals with a population of more than 24 billion, and that was ten years ago!
Higher classification: Red Junglefowl
More about the Red Junglefowl: The Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) is a tropical member of the Pheasant family. It is thought to be ancestral to the domestic chicken, with some hybridisation with the Grey Junglefowl. The Red Junglefowl was first domesticated at least five thousand years ago in Asia, then taken around the world, and the domestic form is kept globally as a very productive food source of both meat and eggs.
