Red Jungle Fowl - the wild ancestor of all chicken
Archeological evidence indicates that the 'mother of all poultry' is the Red Jungle Fowl (Gallus gallus) found in India and Southeast Asia. This is further supported by genetic tests. Domestication of chicken has been observed at the Indus valley as early as 3,200 BC.
Thought this was an appropriate bird to share at this time of the year when eggs are in favour :)
