Study concludes that chicken breeding began 2,400 years ago in Central Asia

The raising of chickens for the production of eggs and chickens is one of the most important economic activities in the world but its origins remain little known. Now, new research suggests that this practice began 2,400 years ago in Eurasia and spread to the rest of the world along the ancient Silk Road.

The conclusions of the study, led by the Max Planck Institute for Geoanthropology (Germany), were published this Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications.

The origin of chicken farming in history has been difficult to determine. In fact, thanks to new archaeological techniques, it has recently been discovered that many bone finds previously believed to represent the first chickens actually belonged to wild birds.

The new research – carried out by an international team of archaeologists, historians and biomolecular scientists – is the first to present evidence of raising chickens for egg production.
