Answer on Where was chicken originally from?

BEST GUESS is Asia - The history of chickens (Gallus domesticus) is a bit of a puzzle. They were first domesticated from a wild form called red junglefowl (Gallus gallus), a bird that still runs wild in most of southeast Asia. That occurred probably about 8,000 years ago in what is now Thailand; however, recent research suggests there may have been multiple origins in distinct areas of South and Southeast Asia
