Chicken (gallus domesticus), a subspecies of the red junglefowl, is a sort of trained fowl, initially from Southeastern Asia. Chicken or rooster is a term for a grown-up male bird, and more youthful male might be known as a cockerel. A male that has been maimed is a capon. The grown-up female bird is known as a hen and a physically juvenile female is known as a pullet. Initially raised for cockfighting or for exceptional services, chickens were not saved for food until the Hellenistic time frame (fourth second hundreds of years BCE). Humans currently keep chickens essentially as a wellspring of food (devouring both their meat and eggs) and as pets.Chickens can as a rule be separated from hens by their striking plumage of long streaming tails and sparkling, pointed quills on their necks (passion) and backs (saddle), which are normally of more brilliant, bolder shadings than those of females of a similar variety.
