We like a trip to the pictures. Nothing can replace the Big Screen in terms of excitement, magic and bigness. But we have noticed something odd. No chickens.
Sharks, horses, monkeys, turtles, dolphins, Jeez Louise even Ants have had films made about them. But Chickens? Only that animated effort Chicken Run. No chicken road movies, chicken lurve, no chicken coming of age stories, not even a chicken in a war movie. Chick flick? me arse. A poultry effort.
Gfb has dug into cinema archives to bring back to your attention a number of classic Chicken Movies that were sadly overlooked by critics and moviegoers alike.
#1 Black Chicken Down
Ridley Scott’s powerful drama set in the mean streets of Mogadishwasher. Can Chopper Chicken rescue the soldiers trapped in this hell hole?

“The most realistic portrayal of chickens in war I have ever seen” – The Delaware Doubter
