Chicken Embryogenesis

The chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) is a domesticated fowl. As one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, and with a population of more than 24 billion in 2003, there are more chickens in the world than any other bird. Humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food, consuming both their meat and their eggs. Conventional wisdom has held that the chicken was domesticated in India, but recent evidence suggests that domestication of the chicken was already under way in Vietnam over 10,000 years ago. From India the domesticated fowl made its way to the Persianized kingdom of Lydia in western Asia Minor, domestic fowl were imported to Greece by the fifth century BC. Fowl had been known in Egypt since the 18th Dynasty, with the “bird that lays every day” having come to Egypt from the land between Syria and Shinar, Babylonia, according to the annals of Tutmose III.

    A note about the title, this is most emphatically not chicken “evolution” as it follows the development of the chick embryo. What this is called (and it is very neat indeed) is chicken embryogenesis. There was once a concept known as “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny” which stated that during development, an animal would pass through the lesser animal forms it evolved from, but this has been soundly disproved. Overall I like the pictures quite a lot, but the title would be more accurate if changed to “chicken embryogenesis”

    I agree with skysoul. This is the growth of a baby chicken. The article is not appropriately titled.

  • Mariah

    You killed countless baby chickens, for no reason.

    And the chicken says: “Eat mor cow!”

    When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!
