The domestic chicken is found all around the world and plays a major role in human diets. Chickens are virtually flightless, and because of this, dreaming of a chicken is a sign that you are trapped on the ground and have temporarily lost contact with the spiritual and intuitive sides of your nature. As chickens are also associated with cowardice, you might be trapped on the ground as you are fearful or worried about seizing a particular opportunity. A hen with her chicks is a sign of domestic happiness. It can also be related to feelings from your early childhood.
