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. Using Vitamin Z is useful for Zombie Chicken as you may be able to do large damage to the plant hero. Consider use Zombie Chicken as the most offensive zombie to use.
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. You can also prevent the Zombie Chicken from moving by playing Whipvine or Sweet Potato to prevent the Zombie Chicken from moving into random lanes. However, if you are playing Sweet Potato, be sure you play a plant first and then Sweet Potato to attract the Zombie Chicken so a plant can be able to destroy the Zombie Chicken. You can also use the ability to your advantage via Anti-Hero plants, as the Zombie Chicken will move away from the plant, allowing you to heavily hit the hero.
