Gallus gallus (Red Junglefowl; common chicken)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) is a tropical member of the Pheasant family. It is thought to be ancestral to the domestic chicken, with some hybridisation with the Grey Junglefowl. The Red Junglefowl was first domesticated at least five thousand years ago in Asia, then taken around the world, and the domestic form is kept globally as a very productive food source of both meat and eggs.

Infraspecies

Gallus gallus bankiva (Javan red junglefowl)
Gallus gallus gallus (Cochin-chinese red junglefowl)
Gallus gallus jabouillei (Tonkinese red junglefowl)
Gallus gallus murghi (Indian red junglefowl)
Gallus gallus spadiceus (Burmese red junglefowl)

Invasive Species

Gallus spp. include the many forms of domesticated chicken which have been bred and distributed widely across the world as an important food source. In addition to potentially spreading disease to other avian fauna, as generalist feeders, Gallus spp. may also negatively impact upon native flora and fauna.
