A chicken is a bird. A chicken egg develops at 88 degrees and hatches at 105 degrees. As chickens grow, they lay large eggs. They don't lay as much when they are young. A hen has to eat four pounds of feed in order to lay a dozen eggs. Chicken bodies contain 15% more water than humans have in their bodies.
People often wonder if the chicken or the egg came first. The egg actually came first. Eggs are found throughout the animal kingdom. What came to be of the first chicken? The first chicken had to be made from a genetic mutation. This means that two proto-chickens mated, and their DNA were combined, forming the modern-day chicken. The two species that mated were the Red Jungle Fowl. The Red Jungle Fowl are native to South-eastern Asian countries. This includes countries like India, Southern China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.
This statement proves that the egg came first and that the chicken was born from two other species. The egg came before the chicken because the modern-day chicken had to lay it.
