Comparing the competitive nature of roosters and hensFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis holds true: the roosters reached the  feeding tray sooner than the hens.
The domestication of chickens first occurred in India. Persians followed suit, and so did the rest of the world. Chickens are reared for their meat and eggs. Chicken meat is cheaper than other meats. Hence, it is consumed more than any other kind of meat..
 

Also consider

Use ducks or turkeys instead of chickens.

The experiment can also be repeated to compare chickens of different ages.
