Zombie Chicken is a recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Zombie Chickens usually arrive in swarms, rushing quickly throughout the lawn, in return for having low health, to the point a single attack will destroy one.
Zombie Chicken acts as the posterchild for "Critters," weaker animals spawned from zombies as part of their attacks of abilities.
As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Zombie Chicken has appeared in three games.

Zombie Chicken first appears in Plants vs. Zombies 2 as the ninth zombie encountered in the Wild West. Its first appearance, along with its owner, is in Wild West - Day 10, being released in swarms when a Chicken Wrangler is damaged enough. Zombie Chicken has the lowest health and the fastest speed of any zombie in the game, moving two squares in a second but being able to handle 1 DPS.
Zombie Chicken has the strange trait of being able to bite a Hypno-shroom without destroying it, likely due to its low health. Additionally, it has an achievement related to it, Fried Chicken, which simply requires a Lightning Reed to zap a Zombie Chicken.
Zombie Chicken next appears in the turn-based mobile card game Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. Here it is a premium uncommon zombie card in the Sneaky class. It is in the Pet tribe, costs 1 has 2/2 and its ability has them move to another empty lane when a plant is played in the lane it is in.
Despite one of its defining features in Plants vs. Zombies 2 being its extremely low health, Zombie Chicken has 2 health rather than 1, to the point it can survive an attack from the plant designed to counter it in that game.
A horde of Zombie Chickens appears in another card, The Chickening. This card is a premium rare card, costs 4, and is a part of the Crazy class. It is a Pet Trick that simply deals 2 damage to each Plant on the board when played.

The latest appearance of Zombie Chicken is in Plants vs. Zombies 3. Here, it is a Farm Zombie acting how it did in Plants vs. Zombies 2, being released by Chicken Wranglers once they are damaged enough, running at fast speeds but taken down quickly.
It first appears in Devour Tower - Floor 14 and, like most zombies, level up as the player progresses through floors. However, these levels simply increase its damage and health, not affecting its attack speed and running speed.
