A group of chickens is called a flock. A group of chickens that have been raised together is called a brood.
A group of chickens that live together in one place is called a coop, or a henhouse if the coop is large enough to house multiple flocks at once. Chickens are also often kept in their own individual cages while they are not being used for egg-laying. These cages are called pens or coops, depending on how large they are and how many chickens they hold.
If you want to know what kind of chicken you have, there are many ways to tell by looking at it and/or its behavior:
The color of its feathers – The color of a chicken’s feathers can tell you its age and gender (if it has any). The most common colors include red, white, black and brown, but other colors such as blue or yellow can be found as well. Other characteristics like whether the bird has any spots on its wings or not can tell you about its breed as well as its age and gender.
The size of its head – The size of a chicken’s head can tell you whether it’s an adult or not; adult chickens have much larger heads than baby ones do because.
