Do Chickens Ever Play

The Question

alexadry asks the question, "Do chickens ever play?" Here is the link if you want to review the answers. In my sick little world, I actually have an answer to this question.

Yes, Chickens Do Play!

Of course chickens play. Most living animals have something they do just for fun. A dog will chase a ball. A horse will run. A cat will chase a laser light. So, why wouldn't a chicken play?

The real question is "What do chickens play?" Obviously they play chicken. That's who humans stole the game from. It is also the reason we haven't stolen any other games from the chickens.

What is chicken? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. "The name "chicken" has its origins in a game in which two drivers drive towards each other on a collision course: one must swerve, or both may die in the crash, but if one driver swerves and the other does not, the one who swerved will be called a "chicken," meaning a coward;"

Chickens play tag, run races and love hide and seek. They have contests on who lays the most eggs or the biggest eggs. . Another favorite chicken game, is survival. It's a game most of them lose at some point. Only problem is you can only lose once.

Why Do chicken's Play?

The next obvious question is, "Why do chicken's play?"

You might think they play for fun. Not really.

Do they play for exercise? No, that's not it.

Do they play for social skills? No, have you ever tried to be social with a chicken?

The real reason chickens play is to decide..............................Are you ready for this?

They play to decide which chicken crosses the road. Yes. it's true. The chicken crossed the road because he excelled at a chicken game. Not only have I answered the question, but I have answered the most famous riddle!
