Chicken Dream Interpretation and Meaning

Share

Dreaming about a chicken can have either positive or negative connotations.

In some cultures, a chicken dream is a very positive sign. It means that happy and prosperous times are coming to you in the immediate future. The chicken symbolizes creative power and fertility, as well as feminine characteristics and power.

For Native Americans, the chicken was always linked to fertility and to ancient rites celebrating sexuality and sacrifice.  Some ancient cultures performed divination rituals using eggs and/or chickens. For example, it was believed to be a bad omen if a hen laid an even number of eggs. In Christian cultures, farmers were happy when their hens laid eggs on Good Friday because that meant they were assured of fertility in all areas of their lives.

The appearance of several chickens in your dream means that you shouldn’t be wasting your time with idle gossip and chatter. If you dream that you are plucking a chicken, this suggests that you aren’t receiving appropriate compensation for your work, while a dream of eating chicken represents rewards received on the job.

The dream chicken may have negative symbolism as well. For example, some cultures believe that seeing chickens in a dream represents a lack of will power or even cowardice. The dream chicken may indicate a lack of common sense in a certain situation or represent a circumstance in which you should exercise caution or view with skepticism.

Dreaming of a chicken may also symbolize fear (“chickening out”) or someone in your life who may be inexperienced or unsophisticated. It may even indicate that the inexperienced person is you! The dream could also be warning you against counting on something or someone prematurely, or it may symbolize someone in your life who can’t function in an independent manner.

  • Hi, I dreamed of a chicken that was removed from me at a different locale and I was at another building that was more a silo than anything. I was attempting to try and get to the chicken fearing for its life as it was undoubtedly hungry and needed my help. I was also trying to shower at the one tower while preparing to shower in the same building that housed the chicken. I had great compassion for the chicken. While I was attempting to get to the chicken at the other building, suddenly the great tower I was in fell and demolished anything under its great weight. I survived. What does this mean to you?

    • I'm no expert, just a fellow dream enthusiast. Were you wanting to care for someone in your waking life? Maybe trying to help someone. Water often represents emotions, so maybe the showers are symbolic for maintenance in your life/chores/daily tasks or thoughts. It's possible you were struggling with your emotional self being in two places at once. It sounds like you cared deeply for this connection to the symbolic chicken. As for the ending, you made it out alive afterwards, with nothing left from the previous setting. Did these actions/choices and events signify some decision outside of your dreams? Chickens tend to represent either good fortune or cowardice.
