Formidable Fowl: from the jungle to the backyard
Play • 36 min
The extraordinary saga of the world’s most common bird: combatant, experimental subject, entrée and friend (not necessarily in this order).  The chicken is far more meaningful to our lives than you ever imagined. They can count, recognize faces and are capable of deception.   We trace the history of the humble chicken from its wild beginnings as the Red Jungle Fowl in Southeast Asia all the way to the broiler chicken of today, and finally to the modern backyard chicken craze.
