The chicken (Gallus domesticus) is the domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) of South-East-Asia. It has been a domestic animal for 5000 years, finding its way to Europe via China and Egypt.

Living under natural circumstances its natural behaviour can still be observed: foraging for food at dusk and sunset, covering under trees during daytime and flying into the trees for nighttime. Thus it is protected against other animals.
Chickens live in social groups with a flexible hierachy. They can recognize more than 100 other chicken. Especially roosters fight for their position in the flock, often using the sharp spike above their fourth, backward facing toe, as a dangerous weapon. With it, they also protect “their” hens against enemies.

Roosters are well known for their loud crow in the early morning which accompanies the sunrise. In ancient Eqypt, roosters were seen to herald the arrival of the God of Sun, and thus they were worshipped.

This Kösen plush rooster is also a very portly figure and is looking forward to moving in with a human and being admired. Maybe you can hear him, gurgling quietly or crowing towards the sun in the morning. Can't you?
