The Scientific Name for the Chicken

-------------------

This is useful information for students doing research projects and school essays on the scientific names of animals. We have compiled a list for your personal reference.

The scientific name for the domestic Chicken is Gallus domesticus.
The scientific name for the chicken is Gallus Gallus.

The scientific name for the Pigeon is Columbia livia.
The scientific name for the Duck is Domestic Anas platyrhyncha.
The scientific name for the Duck is Muscovy Cairina moschata.
The scientific name for the Japanese Quail is Coturnix coturnix japonica.
The scientific name for the Guinea Fowl is Guinea Numida meleagris.
The scientific name for the Turkey is Melleagris gallopavo.
The scientific name for the Peafowl is Phasianidae.

We hope this page has been helpful to you in researching chicken scientific names and the scientific names of common poultry. In most cases, all breeds will be the same species. For example, even though the Barred Plymouth Rock is a specific breed, its chicken scientific name is Gallus domesticus.

If you have any questions, post them on our free poultry message board.

Thanks for this info. I was looking for information about the scientific name of the duck and I also googled "chicken scientific name". This is a realy useful page, I'll be bookmarking it for future reference. Pretty good list of all the poultry scientific names, good for students who are doing science fairs or writing papers.

If anyone else is looking for more good chicken info I would recommend the site this blog links to for raising chickens, its pretty good,

Thanks for the info.

I was answering the age old question of which came first the chicken or the eggs over at Slate.

I used info from your site to say the following:

The egg existed long before the chicken, Gallus domesticus or Gallus Gallus, came along. If you follow evolution, an animal was born to the precursor of the common chicken that mutated from its parent to the extent that it was generically different and became the ancestor to the chicken we know today.
So the concept of the egg came before the chicken but the actual chicken egg came after that first mutated chicken laid its first egg.

Yea verily I say unto thee, go forth and do likewise.

To quote Ford Prefect: Thanks for the fish.

I found a great new place to get information about game fowl. It is a wikipedia for them. They also have a forum with a lot of information on it. Check it out, I know I learned a lot.

Hope you don't mind me saying this, but the scientific name for the Pigeon is Columba livia (and not Columbia livia)
Tip: You can read about Poultry and Pigeons in the online magazine www.aviculture-europe.nl

Even though there is no town code against pet chickens, Niskayuna, NY fined us nearly $4,000 and forced our girls into a rescue ranch. We are appealing the decision and introducing changes to the Town code to more clearly allow chickens.
