Ordinary people and their extraordinary chickens.

Most people best know the chicken from their dinner plates â€“ whether as thigh, wing or drumstick. Consumers rarely pause a moment to consider the bird's many virtues.

The Natural History of the Chicken airs Tuesday, July 27 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011).

Filmmaker Mark Lewis (Cane Toads: An Unnatural History and Rat ) expands the frontiers of popular awareness and delightfully reveals that this small, common and seemingly simple animal is as complex and grand as any of Earth's creatures.
