Who You calling chicken?

Did you know that chickens are the most common bird in the world? In 2003, there were an estimated 24 billion chickens on Earth. That's roughly four times the entire human population! While many people associate chickens primarily with food, they are an important part of many cultures. In fact, chickens play a role in several religions. In India, roosters symbolize Karthikeya, the God of Destruction, and in the Chinese Zodiac Calendar, the chicken represents bravery and resiliency. Chickens are also seen throughout popular culture. Think Big Bird and Chicken Little. In Japan and other parts of Asia, chickens with exceptionally pretty plumage are kept as pets.
