Mother Nature will never stop surprising us with its variety and splendor. But, we tend to believe that, even though that we have not seen everything, all of us must have already seen its beauties.
Well nobody has, because it turns out that Nature has a couple of tricks left in the sleeve. Especially when we’re talking about fauna. If you think that you know what a hen looks like, you might want to think twice!
With a population over 24 billion, there are more chickens in the world than any other bird species. However, there are 150 different breeds of chickens, when it comes to sizes, patterns, and different colors.
The Mi mundo incredible Facebook Fan Page, has posted pictures of a very unique one with breathtaking plumage. This hen is another wonderful work of art by Mother Nature, because it has black hearts ‘painted’ on her fluffy white feathers.
The photo of the hen has gathered thousands of comments and likes, and everybody seems to be amazed by it!
Chickens are birds that have a pretty long history, and the findings of the DNA analysis of chicken bones, that were found near China, are indicating that they date back to about 10,000 years ago, and the domestication of chicken started about 5,000 years ago.
Can you imagine all sizes, shapes and colors of chicken that exist after thousands of years of breeding and selection for numerous extremes?
