In concern with "the taxonomy for [the domestic] chicken": I am not absolutely positive about the validity of this site; I have never used it before, but here is a rather formidably complete bunch of big words. However, one should keep in mind that taxonomists are always, always changing and updating the classifications, so this answer may be out-of-date by next month, or may already be.

Sub Phylum: Craniata.

Division: Vertebrata.

Order: Galliformes.

Family: Phasianidae.

Sub Family: Phasianinae.
