Clipart of the chicken

The chicken is an extant species of avian dinosaur. They are a domesticated subspecies of the Red Junglefowl, and are estimated to have diverged from this main species around 8000 years ago. Though not their initial purpose, chickens are kept primarily as a source of food. They are large producers of meat and eggs.

Classification[]

Along with all other birds, chickens are considered avian dinosaurs. Avian dinosaurs are the only members of clade "Dinosauria" that survived the K-T extinction event which had wiped out three quarters of all life on Earth.
