The chicken is perhaps the most widespread avian species in the world - and the exotic Red Jungle Fowl is the ancestor of the hybrid Araucana and Rhode Island Red.

Scientists postulate that chickens were first domesticated from jungle fowl in India, about 5,000 years ago.

Traders and travelers then carried them far and wide. Find your local Audubon and learn more about wild birds. To see - and hear - a rooster crowing, be sure to watch the video!
