A chicken is, after all, a bird. It has a comb and two wattles, which distinguishes it from the majority of other birds. The comb is a red appendage on top of the head, while the wattles are two appendages behind the chin. These are secondary sexual features that are more noticeable in men. A few other birds have a comb or similar appendage, which is sometimes referred to as a helmet in the case of the guinea, and a few have wattles, albeit some only have a single middle one rather than a pair. The Latin term or categorization of chickens is based on the comb. Gallus means comb in Latin, and Gallus domesticus refers to a domestic chicken. Gallus bankiva, the Red Jungle Fowl, is the ancestor of most domestic chickens. Single, rose, pea, cushion, buttercup, strawberry, V-shaped, and silkie are the eight types of combs.
The fact that chickens have two legs and two wings has an impact on housing and management. Domestic hens have lost their capacity to fly completely. Heavy breeds utilized for meat production are limited to flapping their wings and jumping to a higher height or moving faster along the ground. The lighter-bodied birds are able to fly short distances and even over reasonably high fences. Scales cover the foot and shanks of the legs
