Chicken Riddles

Today’s set of riddles for kids all have ‘chicken’ as their answer.

These are ideal for using with many of our other riddles themes like food, birds, animals, farms, nature and more.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, while the fourth asks your kids What Am I?

To use that last idea, read them the first line and get them to guess the answer. If they’re not correct, read them the second line and get them to guess again.

Keep going until they either realize that the answer is chicken or they run out of clues.

Its breast and its legs
