This is a chicken. The little girl trying to pet the chicken is my little sister Evie. These chickens were near the donkeys in the Moldova room at the Tour of Missions last week at Pathways Church. The chickens were very friendly and were walking around. They didn’t even mind being held.
Chickens are very common at farms around the world. Male chickens are called roosters and females are called hens. They give us tasty eggs and yummy meat. My favorite food is chicken nuggets, which are made from chicken.
Chickens are omnivores, which means they eat both plants, like seeds, and animals, like insects. Chickens do not fly long distances, but some chickens can fly short distances to hop over a fence or into a tree.
