One of the few board wipe tools available for the zombie side alongside Weed Spray and Acid Rain, The Chickening is designed to fight aggro decks and their high attack, low health fighters. As the game progresses and the plants' overall health increases, The Chickening can continue to function as a powerful, but rather expensive trick to weaken plants in conjunction with Bungee Plumber and Zombot's Wrath.
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 (except plants that cannot be damaged at all for that turn via certain means like Peel Shield) 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 to simply use this to defend yourself from plants with low health and high strength, but you could also save it for a later use. Playing this trick can also boost pet zombies like Cat Lady and Zookeeper since it is a pet card, which can benefit them well.
Avoid using it on plants with the "When hurt" trait like Hibernating Beary or Mirror-Nut unless it can destroy them. It will activate their abilities and do more harm than help. Especially with Mirror-Nut, do not use it when there are a lot of nuts on the screen or it will deal heavy damage to the zombie hero.
Kabloom 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 is a good way to reduce the potential destruction that The Chickening cause. It is best to pay attention when Crazy 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.
