Chicken

A bird associated with good and bad luck. A European belief focuses on the number of eggs laid. Should the bird lay eggs which all hatch into cockerels then the owner will be the recipient of good luck, whilst the owner who has a bird which lays an even number of eggs is advised to remove one or the eggs will not hatch. Eggs laid on ‘Good Friday’ will ensure the health and fertility of the hens if preserved intact. An old belief from the Midlands, England (UK) tells that should the birds will roost at midday rather than their normal time just before the death of the farmer. The crowing of the hen is associated with evil, and if a cockerel crows by your back door a stranger is about to call.
