Chicken are long-domesticated birds that were raised by farmers for food.


In a world where chickens were thought to be extinct, some survived underground and lead short lives on the surface protected by the short-lived residents of the hilltop farm ruins after the Great War. Before their deaths, they were cared for by farm residents Miles and Jacky.


Chickens are gregarious, domesticated fowl reared for meat and eggs. They are the most common and widespread domesticated animals whose ancestors were domesticated thousands of years ago. Male chickens are known as roosters, while female chickens are known as hens. The hens lay eggs, which are fertilized by the rooster. Fertilized eggs, kept under the right temperature via the intervention of a hen or a climate-controlled environment, eventually produce infant chickens, known as chicks.
