Big Chicken are bigger and tougher versions of regular Chickens, used as bosses in the Chicken Invaders series. Most of them differ in their appearance and attacks.

Types of Big Chickens

Regular Big Chicken

First appearance:
Chicken Invaders (DOS Version)
Attack:
Ocasionally shoot an egg

Reward: 8-14 different units of Food, occasionally Powerup

Description: This type of Big Chickens is the most common one you'll get to see. They have so far appeared in every Chicken Invaders game, except for Cluck of the Dark Side. Those Chickens just fly around and use a simple attack, which is shooting an egg at where the gravity is pointing at. They do this at a faster rate than Ordinary Chickens. Most of the time, they are of the "regular" breed of Chicken.

Trivia

  • Another member of the Big Chicken family was intended to be present in Ultimate Omelette, which was the Ninja-Chick. It was cut for unknown reasons, likely because InterAction studios couldn't find a place where it would fit. It might have been used in the place of the Chicken Multiplicity fight. It might come back in Chicken Invaders Universe.
  • Big Chickens are also often referred to as Boss Chickens.
