A chicken suit is a novelty costume that exaggerates the features of chickens. Chicken suits usually fit someone up to 6' 1" and 200 lbs.

Chicken Suit

A chicken suit can be used at parties and other events or as a costume for school mascots. Some chicken barbecue companies bring a chicken suit with them for members of the group for whom the barbecue is held to wear in order to advertise the event. Whereas some other costumes such as a Gorilla suit may have the same approximate physical size as the actual animal and under some circumstances roughly pass for the real thing (i.e., in movies and television), chicken suits are always a form of caricature with a cartoonish appearance. One such example is the San Diego Chicken.

Once, as a joke, European ice skater Oksana Baiul entered the ice skating rink wearing a chicken suit.

For an episode of the MTV show Jackass, skateboarder Tony Hawk drove through a looping ramp in a chicken suit.
