Update History

Update 1.2.11

  • Icon change: three Zombie Chickens now appear instead of just one.


The Chickening serves as one of the best board clears in the game and also serves as one of the best cards to stop a "rush" tactic. Its weak damage however, falls off later where the opposing Plant Hero has access to cards that can survive The Chickening's damage. But you can still use this trick to weaken them down, and finally finish them off with Bungee Plumber, Zombot's Wrath or zombie fighters.


Use it like you would use Sour Grapes, but as a trick and the fact it deals more damage. You could also use this to defeat plants in the way of your Anti-Hero zombies so they can get direct hits on the opposing hero (only applicable for Impfinity). If you combine this with the Zombot Sharktronic Sub, you can wipe out all plants in one turn, just by playing this trick while the Zombot Sharktronic Sub is alive. Note that this option is only possible if the player is Impfinity, or Professor Brainstorm (through Eureka). Another option is that, you could simply use this to defend yourself from plants with low health and high strength, but you could also save it for a later use.


PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom Heroes should be especially careful of this trick, as The Chickening can wipe out their entire lineup. Increasing health with Grow-Shroom, Storm Front, Steel Magnolia and Bubble Up can be a good way to reduce the potential destruction that The Chickening can cause. Still, it is best to pay attention when Crazy Zombie Heroes save 4 or more brains, possibly hinting that the player should start protecting their plants.




  • Its name may be a reference to the 2008 horror movie "The Happening," a horror film about plants attacking humanity by spraying a deadly mist.
    • However, the name is also possibly a reference to dialogue of a Wild West level, which was a Locked and Loaded before the 1.7 version. In the dialogue, Penny says that the day the level took place on will be remembered as "The Great Chickening of 1850."
  • Despite this trick featuring Zombie Chickens, it is not in the same class as the Zombie Chicken.
