~ Zombie Chicken's Almanac entry.

The Zombie Chickens are the secondary antagonistic groups of the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. They are speedy chickens who take part in fighting plants and eat the players' brains.


Plants vs. Zombies 2

The Zombie Chickens made their first debut in Wild West - Day 10 while being wrangled by their owner, the Chicken Wrangler Zombie. When the latter took damages, they were released and quickly ate the plants in their way to reach the homeowner's brains.

In Arena and Penny's Pursuit, the Zombie Chickens can be either spawned independently or by Dr. Zomboss's Zombot War Wagon.

Using Lightning Reeds to zap the Zombie Chickens allow the players to earn the Fried Chicken achievement.
