Chicken Fun

 I found some fun chicken facts to go along with some new chicken pictures!!

 There are more chickens on earth then there are people!
 Chickens can run at a speed of 9 mph...(I didn't know it was that fast!)
 A hen can lay up to 300 eggs a year.
 The record for laying the most eggs in one day, from one hen is 7! Wow, I'm lucky if I get that from ALL my chickens in a day.
 The greatest number of yolks in one egg is 9!!
 A hen, while laying on eggs turns each egg 50 times a day so the yolk doesn't stick to the shell.
 These are some pretty crazy fun facts! 
Do you have any good chicken facts?

Wow, that was some great info! Imagine, seven eggs in one day out of one chicken.
