Scientists make new discovery about fowl evolution

A staff of scientists has described probably the most exceptionally preserved fossil hen found thus far, in a newly revealed article. The brand new specimen from the wealthy Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota (roughly 131 to one hundred twenty million years previous) is known as Eoconfuciusornis, the oldest and most primitive member of the Confuciusornithiformes, a gaggle of early birds characterised by the primary prevalence of an avian beak.
