There are 25 billion chickens in the world, more than any other bird species.
The chicken is the closest living relative to the great Tyrannosaurus-Rex.
Chickens are able to remember and recognize over 100 individuals; including humans.
Chickens have very sophisticated social behavior with a dominance hierarchy where higher individuals dominate subordinate individuals. This is where the term "pecking order" comes from.
