Card description

Question: Which came first, the Chicken or the egg? Answer: The Zombie!



Zombie Chicken's ability can be considered to be either a blessing or a curse. While Zombie Chicken is more likely to dodge incoming attacks unharmed and attack your opponent directly, it also means that your opponent is guaranteed a free lane to play a plant of their choice and not worry about retaliation. Because of this, Zombie Chicken could be considered a rather poor lead in the early game, when setup plants like Pea Pod and Sunflower are very effective.

Using Vitamin Z is useful for Zombie Chicken, as you may be able to do a big chunk of damage to your opponent.

Since it is a pet zombie, you can also save it for later to combine with Cat Lady or Zookeeper and boost their strength. Only Brain Freeze can use this combo normally.


This is a difficult zombie to deal with, as it moves whenever a plant is played in its lane, especially early-game. Using plants with Splash Damage like Snapdragon have a higher chance to hit it, even after it has moved. Additionally, filling the field with plants can help, as it has a lower chance to end up on an empty lane.

Using tricks can also help if you cannot find a way to hit it directly.

You can also move Zombie Chicken back to a lane of your choice by playing Whipvine, Hot Date or Sweet Potato. However, if you are playing Sweet Potato, be sure to have a plant behind it so the plant is able to destroy Zombie Chicken.

You can also use its ability to your advantage with PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero plants, as Zombie Chicken will move away from the plant, allowing you to severely hurt your opponent.

  • Its description references the rhetorical question "What came first, the chicken or the egg?".
  • Its ability is the exact opposite of Dog Walker's.
    • Coincidentally, both cost 1BrainPvZH to play, have 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH, and are in the pet tribe.
    • However, they are in different classes.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies 2, it is the weakest zombie in the game, while in this game, it is stronger than Zombie.
  • It and Rodeo Gargantuar is the only Wild West zombies to be featured in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
    • If you include tricks, however, B-flat is based on the piano of Pianist Zombie, a zombie featured in the aforementioned time period.
