This is the supplemental data accompanying the paper "Pioneering Poultry A Morphometric Investigation of Seventeenth- to early Twentieth-Century Domestic Chickens (Gallus gallus) in North America". This file contains linear morphometric measurements and other data used in the analysis reported in this paper.

Table 1: The results of a log scaled comparison of greatest length (GL) measurements taken on archaeological chicken bones from North American assemblages against a modern reference.

Table 2: The results of a log scaled comparison of breadth measurements taken on archaeological chicken bones from North American assemblages against a modern reference.

Table 3: The results of a log scaled comparison of GL measurements taken on archaeological chicken bones from English assemblages against a modern reference.

Table 4: The results of a log scaled comparison of breadth measurements taken on archaeological chicken bones from English assemblages against a modern reference.

Table 5: The composition of the modern standard used in the analysis. Rows 1-14 report morphometric measurements taken on a sample (N=10) of each element for the modern breed listed. Rows 16-23 report the means of Male (M) and Female (F) and the log transformation of these. Rows 26-46 report the same data for the Poland bantam and Dorking used as modern references in figures. Rows 48-64 report the comparison of North American archaeological data to the modern reference.

Table 6: The results of a Mann-Whitney U test comparing the greatest lengths and breadths of archaeological chicken remains from North American and English sites.

All measurements and abbreviations follow zooarchaeological standards outlined in von den Driesch (1976).
