Fun chicken facts from 14 Fun Facts About Chickens from the Smithsonian Magazine:
With 25 billion chickens in the world, there are more of them than any other bird species.
Roosters perform a little dance called ‘tidbitting’ in which they make sounds (food calls) and move their head up and down, picking up and dropping a bit of food. Researchers have found that females prefer males that often perform tidbitting and have larger, brighter combs on top of their heads.
