Question: Which 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 Zombie Chicken is more likely to dodge incoming attacks unharmed and attack your opponent directly, it also means that your opponent is guaranteed a free lane to play a plant of their choice and not worry about retaliation. Because of this, Zombie Chicken could be considered a rather poor lead in the early game, when setup plants like Pea Pod and Sunflower are very effective. Zombie Chicken is also outclassed by Fire Rooster, which has an extra ability that can be extremely powerful, and can clear low-health setup plants that Zombie Chicken has trouble dealing with. Therefore, Zombie Chicken is only effective as a turn 1 lead or an extra fighter if you have Fire Rooster.
Using Vitamin Z is useful for Zombie Chicken, as you may be able to do a big chunk of damage to your opponent.
This is a difficult zombie to deal with, as it moves whenever a plant is played in its lane, especially in the early game. Using plants with Splash Damage like Snapdragon have a higher chance to hit it, even after it has moved. Additionally, filling the field with plants can help, as it has a lower chance to end up on an empty lane.
Using tricks can also help if you cannot find a way to hit it directly.
You can also move Zombie Chicken back to a lane of your choice by playing Whipvine, Hot Date, or Sweet Potato. However, if you are playing Sweet Potato, be sure to have a plant behind it so the plant is able to destroy Zombie Chicken.
You can also use its ability to your advantage with Anti-Hero plants, as Zombie Chicken will move away from the plant, allowing you to severely hurt your opponent.
