Chicken toby jug - Shorter & Son circa 1940

Chicken toby jug produced by Shorter & Son of Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 1940. The chicken is a domesticated red junglefowl species that is originally from India. Rooster and cock are terms for adult male birds, and a younger male may be called a cockerel. An adult female bird is called a hen, and a sexually immature female is called a pullet. People keep chickens primarily as a source of food, consuming both their meat and eggs, or as pets. Traditionally, they were also bred for cockfighting. The chicken's tail feathers form the handle of the jug.
