Anatomy: The rooster is larger and more brightly colored than the hen; he also has a larger comb. Roosters make a very loud crowing sound and can be quite aggressive. Chicken eggs range in color from white to pale brown and other pale colors.
Diet: Chickens have a varied diet. They eat insects, worms, fruit, seeds, acorns, grains, slugs, snails, and many other foods. They have a well-developed gizzard (a part of the stomach that contains tiny stones) that grinds up their food.
Predators: Many animals prey upon chickens. Predators include skunks, owls, raccoons, hawks, opossums, bobcats, and snakes.
