Five Food Finds about Chicken

  • The greatest height a chicken egg has been dropped from without cracking is 700ft.
  • This bird was probably first domesticated for the purpose of cockfights, not as food.
  • Chickens aren’t completely flightless—they can get airborne enough to make it over a fence or into a tree.
  • These birds are omnivores. They’ll eat seeds and insects but also larger prey like small mice and lizards.
  • With 25 billion chickens in the world, there are more of them than any other bird species.

  1. That is amazing about the 700′ egg drop. Must’ve landed in a pile of straw. We tyed with the idea of getting a couple of chooks (Australian slang for chickens) but thought Dixie would chase them around & they’d be too stressed to lay. She won’t tolerate any birds landing in her yard or on the fences or in out trees. She hates birds for some reason.
    She loves chicken though.
    Especially in her food bowl…

    • Wow, that’s funny! I can’t see you with chickens. Although, for some reason, I can picture you running around trying to catch one.
      Thanks for your comment!
