That rabbits do not lay eggs is known to most. But who knows when and how the human came to the chicken? On Easter Monday, the story of chicken farming is told in individual stages. First, the NAMU Bielefeld clarifies about the fossil relatives of the chickens - the dinosaurs. The Bronze Age is about the first tame poultry in Europe, the guinea fowl. The Romans had already reached the limits of the breeders possible with their fighting cocks and hooded chickens. This is also illustrated with today's poultry. A poultry show of RGUV Blomberg to old chicken breeds completes the event.
