Chickens are a domesticated fowl and a subspecies of the red junglefowl.
They are one of the most common and widespread domestic animals with a population of more than 19 billion in 2011.
There are more chickens in the world than any other species of bird or domestic animal apparently.
Humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food, consuming both their meat and their eggs.
Chicken is then eaten in a wide variety of ways in many different culinary dishes and is a staple food in many different countries, civilizations and cultures.
So can gerbils eat chicken at all?
They can’t unfortunately.
It contains too much fat for them to eat and is not a good food for them.
A food to avoid unfortunately.
