There are hundreds of chicken breeds in existence. Domesticated for thousands of years, distinguishable breeds of chicken have been present since the combined factors of geographical isolation and selection for desired characteristics created regional types with distinct physical and behavioural traits passed on to their offspring.

The physical traits used to distinguish chicken breeds are size, plumage colour, comb type, skin colour, number of toes, amount of feathering, egg colour, and place of origin. They are also roughly divided by primary use, whether for eggs, meat, or ornamental purposes, and with some considered to be dual-purpose.
