Museum Launches Online Exhibit About Chickens

“Un-cooped: Deconstructing the Domesticated Chicken” aims to teach people about the chicken’s history, intelligence, and way of life.

The National Museum of Animals and Society has opened an exclusively online exhibit about the domesticated chicken. NMAS hopes “Un-cooped: Deconstructing the Domesticated Chicken,” which highlights the human-chicken relationship and chickens’ behavior and intelligence, will “facilitate a dialogue about the ways chickens are perceived and treated in society and offer an opportunity for people to 'get to know' chickens and their little known charisma, complexity and charm.” Other current exhibitions at NMAS cover topics from the history of humane education to a collection of stories sharing how animals have changed human lives.
