"The chicken eats bread" should be acceptable. No need to make this frustrating.

Is there a difference between is eating and eats or is both the same in Dutch bc in one sentence eet is the one and in the other it's the other

I'm learning too, but from what i can tell these all would be acceptable

It is correct: “The chicken eats bread” . Why do you remark it as a mistake?

It was accepted for me.

I had this as a speech exercise. I said it in English (The chicken eats bread) because my brain was in the mode of translating. And it was accepted! I think maybe the settings of the speech recognition are a bit too liberal :-)
