A chicken raised by Bringloidi settlers. (TNG episode: "Up the Long Ladder"[1])

A chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) is a small domesticated avian animal native to Earth.[2]

Contents

As animals

Chickens have been brought out into the galaxy by Human colonists living on other planets. One such extra-Solar settlement was the Bringloidi colony on Bringloid V in the Bringloid system. (TNG episode: "Up the Long Ladder"[1])

Scotty once jokingly claimed to have sacrificed a chicken and two goats to a computer in order to convince the technology to function again, in reference to an ancient practice of those who believed Lucien's magic. (TAS - Log Three novelization: The Magicks of Megas-Tu[3])

When describing the walking huts of Baba Yaga on the planet Mussourgsky, Spock said that they had "chicken legs". (TOS novel: The Galactic Whirlpool[4])

The USS Stargazer's security chief, Peter "Pug" Joseph, felt that Binderian anatomy looked like that of a plucked, beakless chicken. He suggested that Binderian Ensign Obal would be happier in a different department, but Obal was resolute in his resolve to be a security officer. Obal was also subjected to cruel remarks about his chicken-like anatomy from Ensign Joseph Caber. (STA novel: Gauntlet[5])

In 2380, Q referred to the USS Enterprise-E as a "de-boned chicken of a starship", a derogatory reference to the vessel's hull damage that had required a major refit the previous year. (TNG novel: Q & A[6])

As food

Chicken meat and eggs are widely eaten on Earth, and are a main component of many Human foods. (ST reference: Star Trek Cookbook)

An ancient Human joke is one which an exotic or unfamiliar type of food is said to taste "just like chicken." David Rabin and Spock invoked this joke repeatedly while stranded in Vulcan's Forge on planet Vulcan, referring to hayalit, Starfleet-issue ration bars, and plomeek soup. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Forge)

When Robin Lefler's father explained plasma to her in 2354, she kept thinking he was talking about a gooey sauce for her chicken. (NF - No Limits short story: "Lefler's Logs")

William Riker theorized that the chickens cultivated by the Bandi had an alternative diet than their Earth cousins, the eggs available in his Farpoint Station breakfast were distinctly green, and didn't appear appetizing. (TNG novelization: Encounter at Farpoint)

Riker seemed to have reason to believe that the Bandi's chickens were of the Earth variety, raised on the Bandi world. Although he didn't realize it at the time, the green eggs were probably created by the station itself.

Chicken dishes

Figurative references

The term "chicken" has behavioral connotations in Human language, indicating cowardice. Scotty figuratively referred to Captain Zarlo as being known to him to be "the most chicken commander in the Fleet!" (TOS comic: "One of Our Captains is Missing!")

In similar connotations, "playing a game of chicken" is a Human term referring to engaging an opponent in a contest that ends when one side backs down, out of fear. Chakotay introduced a plan to Tom Paris of playing chicken with the computer-controlled USS Voyager while flying the Delta Flyer. (VOY - Section 31 novel: Shadow)

"Chicken" was a term used by human slaves to refer to Tseetsk, such as the Regent of Koorn Drraagh. (TNG novel: Chains of Command)

Muppet

From Muppet Wiki

Musical chickens from The Muppet Show
Brown chickens from Sesame Street
Muppet chickens in the workshop

Chickens have been a part of the Muppet world since 1972, when the first group of Muppet chickens was created for the Tales From Muppetland special The Muppet Musicians of Bremen. They were precursors to the chickens from The Muppet Show, except they had slightly different eyes. T.R., one of the main characters, would later appear on The Muppet Show as well.

The Bremen chickens were used during the first and second seasons of The Muppet Show. In one episode, guest starring Rich Little, a bunch of real chickens were featured, auditioning for Gonzo's dancing chicken act. It was in this episode that Gonzo developed his obsession with chickens.

During the third season, some new chickens were built with more defined eyes. One of the chickens got the name Camilla and became Gonzo's girlfriend. (Although even Gonzo doesn't know which chicken is Camilla sometimes; they all look alike.)

A black rooster was added to the Muppet Show cast during the second season, and a little chick during the third season. In one of the first episodes, guest starring Harvey Korman, a chicken suit was made for the guest star; it would later be used occasionally whenever a huge full-body chicken character was needed.

The white Muppet chickens made a few rare appearances on Sesame Street; sometime during the 1980's, a group of brown chickens were added to the Sesame cast, as well as a brown/black rooster. The main difference, aside from their color, from their Muppet Show counterparts is their rounded eyes and sharper beaks. Another white chicken made several appearances on Sesame Street, this one had a much smaller head and big, round eyes, but had no eyelids.

Other notable Muppet chickens are the Giant Man-Eating Chicken from John Denver and the Muppets: A Rocky Mountain Holiday, and the Humongous Chicken from The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland.

The Muppet chickens usually communicate with squawks, although they are known to speak at times.

The Muppetchicken, owened by Telly, got a small part in a 4D movie. After this the chicken moved to The Netherlands and got his own part in Sesamstraat. The chicken listen to the name Stuntkip and is a daredevil. Another international chicken is actually a rooster named Kareem from the Israeli/Palestinian co-production.

The chickens are built without an eye mechanism. Instead, the Muppet builders found an alternative by giving some chickens one wide open eye and one 'relaxed' eye with eyelid; this way, the chicken could change emotions by quickly turning its head.

According to Kermit, "You have to treat the chickens pretty well because they've got a very tough union." [1]

Chick

A baby chick that first appeared in episode 321 of The Muppet Show as Robin with "cluck-itis." He made other appearances in the show, including in episode 504, and in the finale of The Muppet Movie.

An enemy monster in the Chicken status. Notice the Brave value below 10

Chicken is a status effect in Final Fantasy Tactics. It happens when a character's Brave is below 10. The character literally turns into a chicken, and runs away from all units, each turn restores its Brave stat by 1. The status is removed when the Brave stat is above 10. Two ways for this status to occur is with the Orator's Intimidate, which lowers a unit's Brave by 20, and Beowulf's Spellblade ability Chicken, which lowers a unit's Brave stat by 50. It can also be achieved using the Mystic's ability, Trepidation.

There is more information available on this subject at Chicken on the English-language Wikipedia.

The Chicken (Gallus gallus, sometimes G. gallus domesticus) is a domesticated fowl likely descended from the wild Indian and southeast Asian Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus) and the related Grey Junglefowl (G. sonneratii). Traditionally it has been widely accepted that the chicken was descended solely from the former, as hybrids of both wild types tended toward sterility; but recent genetic work has revealed that the genotype for yellow skin present in the domestic fowl is not present in what is otherwise its closest kin, the Red Junglefowl. It is deemed most likely, then, that the yellow skin trait in domestic birds originated in the Grey Junglefowl.

The chicken is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals. With a population of more than 24 billion in 2003, there are more chickens in the world than any other bird. Humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food[1], with both their meat and their eggs consumed in large amounts each day.

Goodwin when he had just caught the chicken. ("The Other 48 Days")

Chickens have been seen and heard in Lost. Like wild boar, chickens are not native to Pacific islands, but were frequently introduced by Pacific Islanders as a food source when they populated a new island.[1]

In California, chickens are the central food product of the business Mr. Cluck's Chicken Shack.

Appearances

  • Goodwin catches a chicken and breaks its neck. The tailies hunted them for food. ("The Other 48 Days")

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

A Chicken is a level 1 monster found in many areas, most notably the chicken coops near Lumbridge and the shack next to the sheep fields.

Chickens drop raw chicken for Cooking and Summoning, bones for Prayer, and 5 to 15 feathers for Fishing or Fletching. Feathers are often bought for these purposes, so it is possible to make profit by selling chickens' feathers. Chickens count as birds for a Slayer assignment.

Many low-level players also kill chickens for combat experience, as they have very low defence and rarely do any damage (and even when they do, they cannot hit over one damage). Even high-level players may find chickens useful for food if they find themselves low on health near a chicken coop, as eating a cooked chicken provides 3 Hitpoints. Chickens will sometimes try to retreat when they have 1 hitpoint left.

In most populated free-to-play worlds, chicken coops are often full of bones and raw chicken left by players training on the chickens. If one chooses to bury the bones and cook the chicken, they will gain a decent amount of Prayer and Cooking experience. Raw chicken can be bought from Canifis and Port Sarim food stores and is required in several quests.
