Poultry Classes

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? And why did the chicken cross the road? Maybe they just want to live their lives without their motives being questioned!

Poultry are domesticated birds kept by humans for the purpose of producing eggs, meat, and/or feathers. Poultry comes from the French/Norman word, poule, itself derived from the Latin word Pullus, which means small animal. Did you know that March 19th is National Poultry Day and in Ancient China, a goose was given as a wedding present to represent faithfulness.
