What is TikTok's great ‘chicken war’ all about?
Person finds chickens sunbathing on the front porch!

From the random to the obscure, there is always new trend that's taking over TikTok and this particular one involves chickens.

This "chicken war" craze sees owners jokingly flex the fighting abilities of their prized birds.

And don't worry, there's no actual blood sport involved – just fighting talk from the humans.

It all started when TikToker Dylan Bezjack (@dylan_bezjack) filmed himself walking with a flock of chickens closely following behind him, to which he quipped that he and the chickens were on their way to “kick some a**.”
