I am a third grade teacher in California. My class is studying about country life. We have a questions that perhaps some of you may be able to help us answer. Our question is: Where did chickens come from? What country did it first appear in in the beginning of time?

Thank you,

Ms. T

The ancestors of our modern meat chickens or 'broiler' chickens are thought to be the red jungle fowl that live in the forests of India and South-east Asia. Naturally, chickens would make a nest and lay one or two clutches of eggs a year, which they would incubate. When the chicks hatch the hen would protect her young in their first few weeks of life. The chickens used for egg production originated form these same ancestors.

Now how they went from Asia to other parts of the world is probably up to Marco Polo and Colonel Sanders and few other travelers

It's probable that chickens originated in Asia. There are some mighty backward ancient old villages in isolated China that had chickens, villages that hardly mixed or exchanged any knowledge or culture with the outside worlds.

Over 2000 years ago, the robbing, stealing, Roman conquers, now known as Italians, did not have chickens although they hunted for other fowl animals. Seems Marco Polo might have brought them from Asia.

It is believed by some circles that the modern chicken was domesticated from a Guinea fowl like
bird of africa or madagascar. It is a dark bird with spots on its feathers and carries many traits of the chicken. Some believe that the Barred Rock
carries more closely the early traits of that species.

Doing research via the Country Living discussion forum?? Consulting an enclyclopedia might be a better choice if you intend to teach our younguns.

Genesis chapter 1, verse 24 to the end of the chapter.
That being said, I do know that the first bird to be domesticated was the goose, probably in Africa or maybe Asia. The source of my knowledge of this is Trivial Pursuit.

Good morning, Mrs. T and children. According to my World Book Encyclopedia, "most chickens are believed descended from a type of wild fowl that lives in the jungles of southeast Asia. Man began taming and raising these wild jungle chickens 3000 to 5000 years ago. Ancient records show that the Chinese began raising chickens about 1400 BC." Have a wonderful day, y'all!
(On the one hand, I hope this does not disturb the troglodytes of the Flat Earth Society, but on the other hand, I don't care.)

I'm not about to get into a religious debate with anyone, but chickens are related to the dinosaurs. Science has shown that everything here on earth has evolved over millions of years. The evidence is in the ground.

Adam and Eve and the garden, they were there, Because God said, He created everything, and He created the animals first, then He created man.

Don't expect that to make it into a public school classroom.
