Feral chickens are derived from domestic chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) that have returned to the wild. Like the Red Junglefowl (the ancestor of domestic chickens), feral chickens will take flight and roost in tall trees and bushes in order to avoid predators at night.

Feral chickens, like the wild Red Junglefowl, typically form social groups composed of a dominant cockerel, several hens and subordinate cocks.[1]
