Transcript of Chickens

about them
Chickens perform complex communication where calls have specific meanings. They perform over 30 types of vocalization that we are aware of with meanings varying from calling youngsters, alarm calls, and alerting others to the whereabouts of food. They also have different alarm calls for specific types of predators, which allow con specifics to know the type of threat they face and what sort of anti-predation behavior to perform
Know who's Boss
And chickens are not just animals they have formed a complex society so they know who gives and take orders.
Thank you!
Great mothers
Hens are extremely affectionate and caring mothers. In Christian writings, Jesus is said to have used the love of a hen for her brood to express God’s love for humans. In Ancient Rome, saying ‘you were raised by a hen’ was a compliment.
Chicken deaths
In the United States alone, more than 8.5 billion chickens are killed every year. That’s 272 every second!

Those numbers are pretty crazy, right?, I literally couldn’t get my head around all those zeros. Every single one of those chickens is a unique individual that has so much more to offer the world than ending up on someone’s dinner plate.

The meat and eggs of chickens are widely eaten by people across the world. Many people who consume animal products would like to choose products from animals kept in higher welfare systems. However welfare labeling on products can be confusing.
Socialization in the chicken world
Chickens have very sophisticated social behavior with a dominance hierarchy where higher individuals dominate subordinate individuals. This is where the term "pecking order" comes from.
It may not sound very appealing to you, but chickens take so much pleasure in digging a shallow pit in the dirt, spreading their winds and rolling around in it. Dust baths help chickens maintain proper feather insulation and ward off parasites. I’ve known chickens that have spent their entire life cooped up in a cage but when given the chance to be free, one of the first things they ever did was give themselves a dust bath.

what they do
Eggs and the hens
Chicken facts
Chickens are pretty amazing because they can do things that we never knew they could do like......

1. Chickens have a great memory. They can distinguish between over 100 different faces of people or animals.

2. Chickens have full-color vision.

3.They actually dream dreams when they sleep.

4. Chickens can feel pain or distress.

5. Over 452 million hens are used a year for eggs.

6. There are over 25 billion of them in the world, that's more than any other bird.

7. The rooster's wattle is used to bring attention to him when dancing for the hens.
Weird facts
There are some very disturbing/creepy facts about chickens as well as Mother hens talk to their chicks when they are still in the egg, The waste made by a chicken in its lifetime can make enough electricity to run a 100 watt bulb for five hours!, and something creepy AND disturbing A chicken can live for a short while without a head!. (weird huh?).
Mother hens can lay about seven eggs a day of eggs. They can do that everyday for about two years, now chickens can live a sort of long life..but i don't think any live long enough after they stop laying eggs because usually there owner chomps them up and either sells them to KFC or eats them for dinner.
Fun Facts
Fact #1: Chickens make good teachers.

Mother hens can show their babies what is good to eat and what is not. In tests, hens have taught their babies to stay away from color-coded grains that are bad for them.
Fact #2: Chickens have their own “language.”

It’s thought that chickens have about 30 distinct vocalizations that they use to communicate with each other. For instance, the warning cry for a predator that is coming on the ground is different from the cry for a predator coming from above.
More Fun Facts
Fact #3: Chickens are more docile at night.

Chickens go into a passive, trance like state when they sleep at night. Consequently, if you need to catch and handle a chicken that is not very tame, do it at night after the chicken has settled down to roost.
Fact #4: Chickens learn who you are.

Chickens can recognize up to 100 faces!
Warning: chickens know who you are so DONT make them angry.
