This is the most common and widespread poultry animals. There are more chickens than any other bird or domesticated fowl. Humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food eating both their meat and eggs and, much less commonly, as pets.

There are hybrid types, some best for eggs, and some only for meat. Depending where you are inside the globe this can decide what kind of bird is being used.
