Just the Facts, Ma'am

Little Known Chicken Facts courtesy of Poultry Hollow:

 #1 Chicken are pretty fast. The chicken can travel up to 9 miles per hour when it wants to.

#2 The largest ever recorded chicken egg weighed nearly 12 ounces, and measured 12.25 inches around.

#3 Chicken language has real meanings. The birds give different alarm calls depending on which type of predator is threatening them.

#4 There are more chickens on Earth than there are humans.

#5 Chickens can cross breed with turkeys. The result is called a 'Turken'.
(This one may not actually be true. Something about different number of chromosomes... However, there is a type of chicken, the Naked Neck Turken, named for its resemblance.)
