Chickens
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     A chicken is a bird. Birds are the only type of animal that has feathers. There are more chickens on earth than people! That's because people raise chickens for their eggs and for their meat.
 
2     Most farms have some chickens. People like to eat chicken eggs. All birds, including chickens, lay eggs. Female birds lay eggs. Chickens are an important food source for people.
 
3     A male chicken is called a rooster or a cock. A hen is a female chicken. A chicken has two legs. A chicken has two wings. All birds have two wings, but not all birds can fly.
