Nature never stops to surprise us with its splendor and variety. However, we tend to believe that, even though we haven’t seen it all, we must have seen most of its beauties.
I have to disappoint you, as it turns out that Mother Nature has a few tricks up her sleeve! Especially when it comes to fauna! If you think you know what a hen looks like, think again!
With a population of more than 24 billion, there are more chickens in the world than any other bird. Yet, there are more than 150 different breeds that come in various colors, patterns, and sizes.
The Mi mundo increible Facebook page has published photos of a unique one with incredible plumage! This hen is another spectacular works of art by Nature, as it has black hearts “painted” on her white feathers.
The photo of the hen has garnered thousands of likes and comments, and everyone seems to be fascinated by it!
Chickens are birds with a very long history, and the findings of a DNA analysis of chicken bones discovered near China indicate that they date back to ∼10,000 years, and domestication started perhaps 5,000 years ago.
Can you imagine all colors, shapes, and sizes that exist in chickens after centuries of selection and breeding for numerous extremes?
