Why were chickens domesticated

Jungle fowl origins and facts from Rob Dunn article

Rob Dunn’s article titled Jungle Fowl: A remarkable bird opened my eyes to some
fascinating facts on chicken history.

I always assumed chickens
were brought into villages for eggs and meat, but that’s more than
likely a product of my city boy upbringing. Turns out chickens were
first valued for cockfighting and fortune telling.

Several dozen calls of
chicken vocalization have been identified, but a large chunk of the
language has yet to be decoded.

work check out Robrdunn.com. I’m already intrigued by his latest book
The Wild Life
of our Bodies
Parasites, and Partners that shape who we are today.
