Text from the story:
When you think of a chicken, what do you imagine? Do you imagine a crowing rooster or little yellow chicks? Do you think calling someone a “chicken” is a compliment? You may not believe it, but chickens are really very brave animals! They are also very friendly.
On farms, chickens do not have the best living quarters. They are often crowded together and forced to lay eggs, or they are raised for meat. But in nature, chickens live in open spaces in groups of about 30 birds. The groups are like herds, and each chicken has a special place in the group called its “pecking order.” Chickens who are higher in the pecking order get to eat first. They also get to sleep in better spots. When chickens sleep, they fly to high places in trees where they will be safe. This is called “roosting.”
