How is it similar the man's forelimb and chicken's wing?
They are homologues, meaning that they arise from the same structure, presumably the bony fin of some ancient fish. There's a distinction between homologues (or homologs) which have the same ancestry and analogs, which perform the same function. Some structures are both. Birds' wings and bats' wings are both homologous and analogous. Birds' wings and bees' wings are analogous but not homologous and bird's wings and elephants' front legs are homologous, but not analogous.
