Chickens in Egypt

The chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) is a subspecies of the red junglefowl (Gallus gallus) domesticated by humans. Among the most widespread and common of domesticated animals worldwide, it has been a staple of the human diet for millennia.

By the 5th century BCE, chickens had been domesticated for their eggs. They were also a source of leather, which was used to craft armors.[1]

During the 1st century BCE, chickens were kept by Egyptians living in the rural countryside, where they were used as a source of food and feathers.[2]
