As of 2003, there are more than 24 billion chickens on earth.
That’s a lot more chickens than humans, which is a good thing, because chickens are yummy when fried.
Chickens fly better than a penguin, emu, kagu, kiwi, and ostrich combined.
However, not that well compared to most other birds.
The world’s record for a nonstop chicken flight is a little more than 230 yards.
Chickens were first domesticated in Asia about 10,000 years ago, and were imported to Greece by the fifth century B.C.
