Chicken fun facts

I thought we would share a few fun facts about chickens you may or may not know..... For example, like the sign in the photo states, it takes about 21 days for an egg to hatch!

Here are a few more interesting and maybe odd facts for you:

  1. There are more chickens on earth than there are people, over three billion in china alone.
  2. Recent evidence suggests that domestication of the chicken began in Vietnam over 10,000 years ago.
  3. A chicken's heart beats at an amazing 280-315 beats a minute.
  4. Chickens can run at a speed of 9 mph.
  5. Chickens are the closest living relative of the tyrannosaur.
