Card description

Question: What 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 that Zombie Chicken is likely to escape from incoming attacks unharmed and attack the hero directly, it also means that the plant hero is guaranteed a free lane to play whatever plant of their choice and not worry about retaliation. Because of this, Zombie Chicken could be considered a poor lead in the early game, when plant heroes are likely wanting to play plants such as Pea Pod and Sunflower.

Since this is a pet zombie, you can also save it for later to combine with Cat Lady or Zookeeper and buff strength for them.


This is a difficult zombie to deal with, as it moves whenever a plant is planted in its lane, especially early game. Using multi-directional plants like Threepeater are great for disposing of this. Additionally, filling the lawn with plants can help as it will run to another lane with another plant. Using tricks can help too if the player cannot find a way to hit it directly.




  • Its description references the rhetorical question "What came first, the chicken or the egg?".
  • Its special ability is the exact opposite of the Dog Walker's special ability.
    • Coincidentally, both cost 1Brain to play, both have 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH when first played and both are in the Pet tribe.
    • However, both are in different classes.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies 2, this zombie is the weakest zombie in the game, while in this game, it is stronger than a normal Zombie.
  • It is the only Wild West zombie to be featured in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
    • However, B-flat is based on the Pianist Zombie, a zombie featured in the aforementioned time period.
  • Even though three Zombie Chickens are featured in The Chickening, they are not in the same class.
