  • RE: chicken first crossed road in se asia

    the chicken has been around 9500 years. Roads were invented 7500 years ago.
    Chicken had 2,000 years to spread before the road. The earliest roads were not in SE Asia. So likely the first chicken to cross the road did not do it SE Asia as stated in the online headlines.
