Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings


Historically, birds are symbolic of good luck. If you happen to glance upon a chicken in your dream, this could be a good omen.

Although it could have several meanings, wealth and prosperity may be coming your way.


Chickens are sold or slaughtered for food and then sold, which is why they may symbolize financial wealth and prosperity. In order for this to be true, however, the chicken in your dream must have been free or well-cared for on a farm. If there was a group of chickens in your dream then your financial well-being is conditional. Your dream is foretelling prosperity as long as you work together with others as part of a team. Make sure you are contributing at work in a team environment, or that you are working together with your family when discussing finances.

In your dream you may have…

  • Seen a chicken.
  • Eaten chicken.
  • Been surrounded by chickens.
  • Become a chicken.
  • Taken on chicken-like characteristics.
  • Seen a picture or a symbol of a chicken.

Positive changes are afoot if…

  • The chicken was happy and healthy in his environment either in the wild or on a farm.
  • You saw an image of a chicken while you were doing an everyday activity or something fun.
  • The part of the chicken you were eating was natural.

Dreaming of birds generally signifies positive times. Birds are considered good omens, and chickens can be included in this category. Chickens are unique, however, in that they are raised on farms for a couple of reasons.

If the chickens in your dream appeared to be in trouble or were caged, your finances may be at risk. If you were thinking of investigating your time and money into something risky, you may want to rethink it. Caged chickens can also represent social anxieties. You are afraid to step outside your social circle but are feeling pressured to do so.

The chicken has a dual nature in that it can represent prosperity and wellness or our biggest social issues. Chickens are timid and antisocial, which is why it is often an insult to be called a chicken. This is why it is important to look at where the chicken is in your dream. If the chicken is free-roaming and healthy, you probably have nothing to worry about. However, a caged or out of place chicken represents that fear of leaving your home and your comfort zone. Will it kill you to try something new? Do something bold and daring. Where bright prints for a change, or introduce yourself to someone new; it could be fun!

The easiest way to recognize whether your dream represents social anxiety is if you yourself were turned into a chicken in your dream. This represents you holding back or hiding from something important in your life. Look back on what has been happening recently. Are you feeling fear or anxiety about a new development, transition, or upcoming event in your life? Your subconscious has turned you into a chicken to show you the effects of your fears.

Eating chicken in your dream can be a positive thing, as long as the chicken seemed natural, healthy, and not breaded. A pan-fried breast, for example, is a positive thing and could suggest the same prosperity and wealth as a live chicken. If, however, you to know that the chicken you are eating was mistreated, or if you are eating it in an unnatural form (breaded, nugget), then it is not a good omen. This predicts either financial ruin or guilt about something.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life…

  • Finances and money-managing.
  • Financial and business success.
  • New marketing strategies and investment.
  • General well-being.
  • Social anxieties.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of a chicken…

Anxiety. Health. Wellness. Freedom. Timidity. Transformed. Pressured. Stable.
