Funny Chicken Jokes

One of the most popular animal jokes that we all know is about chickens. Before moving to the age-old question, “Why did the chicken cross the road?”, let’s first discuss animal jokes that discusses chicken jokes from a different angel:

One Wednesday, a Husband Took His Wife to the Doctor

‘Oh, doctor’, he said, ‘my wife thinks she’s a chicken’.

The doctor gasped, ‘That’s terrible.

How long has she been like that?’

The husband replied, ‘Three years’.

The doctor was horrified, ‘Three years!

Why didn’t you bring her to me sooner?’

The husband said sheepishly, ‘Because we needed the eggs.’

As you can see, such humor intertwined with the absurd is an integral part of animal jokes.

Here is a new twist on one of the eternal animal jokes: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Mother Hen: A True Funny Tale From China

A hen in China has reportedly adopted two orphaned puppy dogs after their mother died.

Owner, Cao Fengying, of Majiaqiao village, Jiashan town, China, says the hen was best friends with the puppy’s mother.

Will and Guy have learned that Cao reported, ‘The hen and the dog had been friends for two years. They would never fight but just play together. I thought the puppies would die after their mother went but the next morning I discovered that the puppies had gone missing. Then I heard the hen clucking in her coop. I looked over and saw that the little puppies were underneath the hen.’

The hen now looks after her adopted children, defending them if anyone approaches and letting them eat first at meal times. ‘Once I even saw the hen fight off several other chickens which were trying to steal the puppies’ food,’ continued Cao. This simple joke indeed reminds us wonders found in the world of animal jokes.

More Animal Jokes On Why The Chicken Crossed the Road

The next bunch of animal jokes are also about chickens, but specifically focus on the chickens that crossed the road.

Chickens on the Road

chickens a80

On October the 11th 2007, a lorry load of chickens was being taken from a farm where they were raised to the slaughterhouse.  2,500 birds managed to carry out a daring escape on the A80 near Haggs in Scotland.

When the lorry jack-knifed, true to form, instead of heading for the hills, like headless chickens they dashed about all over the dual carriageway.  What they did achieve was to bring much of the traffic between Glasgow and Stirling to a halt.

We would like to wish the lorry driver a speedy recovery, for him it was not funny as he sustained severe back injuries.  Naturally, there were casualties amongst the chickens and about 500 died in the escape.

A Modern Phenomenon – Mobile Phone Pictures

chickens a 80 2

This one is an intersection of traditional animal jokes with contemporary technology. While ‘Why did the chicken cross the road’ is an old chestnut, photographing anything that moves on a mobile phone is a relatively modern phenomenon.

To the police officers and chicken catchers, who were trying to catch the birds, it was irritating when a fleet of amateur paparazzi snapped their best efforts to capture the chickens.

Those filming on mobile phones became so annoying and intrusive that the police dispatched a special unit to take the registration numbers of the worst offenders.  At least 50 motorists can expect to receive £60 fixed penalty notices, (when the postal strike is over!).

Meanwhile, most of the chickens, who had known nothing but a battery existence, were disorientated by their sudden exposure to wide open spaces and just hung around in groups waiting to be captured. Local farmers said that wild chickens would have behaved in exactly the same stupid manner. However, one chicken made his getaway…

Why Did the Computer Chicken Cross the Road?

We’re continuing animal jokes with modern twists again.

  • Assembler Chicken: First, it builds the road ……
  • C Chicken: It crosses the road without looking both ways.
  • C++ Chicken: The chicken wouldn’t have to cross the road, you’d simply refer to him on the other side.

Self-Sufficient Chicken

Take a look at one of our animal jokes on this short comic:

More fascinating news of animal jokes has reached Will and Guy about Humans and Chickens.

Would you believe that we have found a lady who knits jumpers, and jerseys, for featherless chickens? A woman from Oxfordshire, England, has started knitting sweaters for the naked creatures. Previously she had been supplying local dogs with their woollies.

The jumpers are made from eyelash wool and were specially designed after the chickens’ measurements were taken.

Ms Blaine explained that measuring the chickens was problematic. ‘Obviously, they have quite small necks and big bodies,’ she said, ‘And I had to make room for the wings. It was a bit like knitting a funnel.’

This story introduces a heartwarming chapter to the collection of our favorite animal jokes.

Amusing Animal Jokes on True Cow

English dairy farmers keep their cows happy and productive by giving them regular brush-ups in
the cow wash.  They fit the oversized brush into their milking sheds, thus keeping the cows clean and content.

A DeLeval spokesman claimed that brushing improved the cows’ blood circulation, which in turn boosted milk production by 3.5%.

‘Daisy 153’ looks to be purring with pleasure! And hope you enjoyed one of the best animal jokes about cow grooming.

Worse – Cow Stuck in a Washing Machine

cow washing machine

Another one of the animal jokes on cows has a peculiar twist. The RSPCA was called to rescue the heifer called ‘Spinner’ from a field at Higher Fraddon, Columb, Cornwall, England.  The cow had to be freed after getting her head stuck in a fly-tipped washing machine drum.

The lucky cow escaped injury after her ordeal, but the animal charity warned today that fly-tipping can cause animals harm. ‘It is one of the more unusual things we had had to rescue an animal from,’ said RSPCA spokeswoman Jo Barr. ‘Young cows are quite curious, and she probably thought there was some food inside the drum,’ she added.

A member of the public spotted the frustrated ‘Spinner’ trying to free herself from the metal drum. RSPCA inspector David Hobbs rescued the heifer, and she has since returned to her herd unharmed. That’s how our favorite of the animal jokes finished.

Lesson from these animal jokes: Keep your nose out of things that do not concern you.

Another Bovine Head Case

cow ladder

This funny story is an integral part of popular animal jokes. Members of the public spotted the bullock with its head on the ladder. An animal charity has rescued an animal in South Ayrshire, Scotland, which had got its head stuck in a ladder Will and Guy can reveal.

Members of the public called the Scottish SPCA [Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals] after spotting the bewildered beast in a field beside the Troon to Barassie road recently.

An inspector contacted the farmer who owned the Belgian Blue bullock and helped return it to the herd unharmed.  The farmer, who owns the bull, told Will and Guy that he had no idea how the ladder came to be in the field.

Frisky Cows

herd cows

A Sussex policeman has been hospitalized after being attacked by a herd of young tearaways.  In this case, the violent gang consisted of 50 cows. Inspector Chris Poole received four broken ribs and a punctured lung after the normally docile animals butted and stamped on him when he was out walking his dog on the South Downs.  One angry cow charged him in the back, forcing him to the ground before the other members of the herd joined in.

Mr Poole said he only managed to escape when Zak, his faithful golden retriever, ran away and the cows chased after it.  Inspector Poole then managed to attract the attention of another dog walker, who called for an air ambulance.

The RSPCA said cows could become protective of their young to the point of becoming aggressive, especially if a large dog was nearby.  There are no plans to place an ASBO on the herd. This encounter might well remind us of the unexpected humor found in animal jokes.

Short Cow Jokes

Let’s continue animal jokes, especially those about cows that represent funny side of farm life:

  • Two farmers are talking to each other over a 5-bar gate when one turns to the others and asks your cows smoke? No, answered the first one, surprised. Well, then your cowshed must be burning!
  • What do you get if you milk a forgetful Frisian cow? Milk of Amnesia.
  • Why did Daisy the cow wear a bell around her neck? Because her horn didn’t work.

True Life Cow Humour

True life events often provide the best material for animal jokes. This is especially well-represented on the following cow-related animal jokes:

My husband and I were watching the Western movie: “Chisholm”.

The evil lawmen are shooting innocent men, instead of bringing them to trial; Chisholm arrives, to prevent a massacre; he brings men on horseback and a herd of cattle, which plows through the town, causing dust, the sound of pounding hooves and loud mooing…

I ask my husband: “Are they providing a diversion?”

“Yes. But they are COW ACTORS. They GET PAID.”

I start to visualize the audition process. “Can you run fast, and moo loudly? Sorry, you are not mooing loud enough Cow No. 44. Next …”

Cow Awards

Believe it or not, some animal jokes even tell short stories of cow awards:

Bovine Actor of the Year:

Bovine Actress of the Year:

Incidentally, she was better than all the udders.

Two west country yokels were on the train heading homewards through Somerset, England when one of them noticed some cows.

‘What a lovely bunch of cows.’ he remarked.
‘Not a bunch, herd,’ his mate replied.

‘Heard of what?’
‘Herd of cows.’

‘Of course, I’ve heard of cows.’

Yes, animal jokes even tell stories of mad cows:

Two cows, Daisy and Ermintrude were chatting over the fence between their fields. Daisy speaks first, ‘I tell you, this mad cow disease is really pretty scary.  They say it is spreading fast; I heard it hit some cows down on the Thomas’s Farm.’

Ermintrude looks up and replies, ‘I’m not worried in the slightest, it doesn’t affect us chickens.’

cow bse


Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) is commonly known as Mad Cow Disease.
It is believed, but not proven, that the disease may be transmitted to human beings who eat infected meat.  An alternative explanation is that BSE is inhaled by coming into contact with the dust from products made from infected animals.

A Double Lesson

earth day cow

It turns out that sometimes we can even learn life lessons from animal jokes. Here’s how it goes:

A carload of hunters, on holiday, were looking for a place to hunt, pulled into a farmer’s yard in County Waterford, Ireland. The driver, Brannagh, went up to the farmhouse to ask permission to hunt on the farmer’s land.

The old farmer said, ‘Sure you can hunt, but would you be doing me a favor? That old donkey standing over there is 20 years old and sick with cancer, but I don’t have the heart to kill her. Would you do it for me?’

Brannagh replied, ‘Of course, I will,’ and strolled back to the car.

While walking back, however, Brannagh decided to play a trick on his hunting friends.  He got into the car and when they asked if the farmer had said if it was alright, he said, ‘No, we can’t hunt here, but I’m going to teach that old fellow a lesson he won’t forget.’

With that, the Irishman rolled down his window, stuck his gun out, and shot the donkey. As he shouted, ‘To be sure, that will teach him,’ a second shot rang out from the passenger side and one of his hunting mates yelled, ‘And me, begorrah, I got the cow.’

Interesting Facts About Cows

After discussing some cow-related animal jokes, now we think that you might be interested in hearing some facts about them:

  • Cows really do give more milk when they listen to music in the milking parlor.  Ask your government for a grant to study the effect of music on milk production.  Then make your fortune by inventing an iPod for cows so they can listen to music as they graze!
  • In the Indian language, the literal translation of the Sanskrit word for ‘War’ is, ‘we want more cows’
  • It would take a huge herd of around 2,500 cows to supply the 20,000 Wilson footballs that the NFL needs for each season’s games.  However, no cows die when the English soccer season kicks off.  The reason is that soccer footballs are made from synthetic materials.
  • Bamboozle the innumerate.  Tell them that it takes 20 pints of milk to make one pint of butter.  Then ask them how many gallons of milk would it take to make a gallon of butter.  (Naturally, the answer is 20 gallons.)

Funny Animal Jokes on Ducks

ducks follow

Here is Will and Guy’s collection of animal jokes, funny stories, and videos on the subject of ducks and chickens. First, let’s start with animal jokes on ducks:

An Example of Imprinting – Duck Road Calming

Ann Martin, 63, of Portesham, Dorset taught ducks to follow her from a nearby pond and then to cross the road.  Ann’s idea is to slow speeding drivers, especially during the rush hour.  Ann Martin, who is a local postmistress, said that drivers heading into Weymouth ‘use the village as a rat-run’.

Good Duck Joke

duck cartoon

Billy, the traveling circus owner, walked into a bar to see everyone crowded around a table watching a show.

On the table was an upside-down pot and a duck tap dancing on it. Billy was so impressed that he offered immediately to buy the duck from its owner. After some negotiations, they settled on a figure of $20,000 for the duck and the pot.

Four days later the circus owner, Billy, runs back to the bar in anger and shouts, ‘Your duck is a rip-off! I put him on the pot before a whole audience, and he didn’t dance a single step.’

‘So?’ asked the duck’s former owner calmly, ‘did you remember to light the candle under the pot?’

Hopefully, you agree that animal jokes on Billy the Duck are amusing.

Funny Duck Humour

A duck goes into a bar and says, ‘I would like a drink. I am old enough.’

The bartender replies, ‘You need to be able to prove who you are.’

The duck pulls out a mirror. He looks into it, nods his head, and says ‘Yep, that’s me.’

Duck or Chicken?

Alice and Emile went for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and they ordered the ‘Chicken Surprise.’  The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot. Just as Alice is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.

‘Good grief, did you see that?’ she asks her husband, Emile.  He hasn’t, so she asks him to look in the pot. Emile reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down. Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.

‘Please sir,’ stammers the waiter, ‘what did you order?’ Emile replies, ‘Chicken Surprise.’

‘Ah! So sorry, is mistake’ says the attendant, ‘I bring you Peeking Duck!’

The Kiss of Life Chicken Style

Marian Morris from Arkadelphia, Arkansas, resuscitated her brother’s pet chicken Boo Boo, and saved its life after it was found floating face down in the family’s pond.

Mrs Morris, a retired nurse, said, ‘I breathed into its beak, and its eyes popped open. I breathed into its beak again, and its eyes popped open again.

‘I said, ‘I think this chicken’s alive now. Keep it warm.’

Boo Boo got her name because she is easily frightened. It is thought she flopped into the pond after being startled.

She made a full recovery report The Sun online.

Funny Duck Tale

duck in cup

Alan is driving a pickup truck along the road with a flock of ducks in the back. He is stopped by a zealous police officer who informs Alan that he is speeding and then asks him where he’s going with all the ducks. Alan replies that he is not sure what to do with them. The policeman tells him helpfully, ‘Look, Marwell Zoo is not far from here and that’s a good place as any to take
them.’ Alan thanks the police officer and drives off with his ducks.

The next day the officer again sees the same pick-up truck hurtling down the road. This time, though, all the ducks in the back are wearing sunglasses. The officer pulls Alan over again and growls, ‘I thought I told you to take those ducks to the zoo.’

‘I did,’ responded Alan happily, ‘but now they want to go to Southsea Beach.’

And as you can see, sometimes animal jokes even feature duck tales.

Ducks Stroll Through Shop To Reach River

The fluffy new family had to be escorted to safety by shop staff after the ducklings hatched on a wall in the backyard of the Kidney Research UK charity store in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, England.  Their journey involved a 100-yard waddle through the store, across pavements, and over a busy road to the River Great Ouse quayside, where they plopped three feet down into the water.

Dozens of shoppers stopped and watched in amazement as the mallard and her ducklings ignored the bustle on the street and set off for a dip. Shop manager Carol Andrews informed Will and Guy that she has been chaperoning ducks through the store each Spring since it opened seven years ago.

Every year Mrs Andrews makes a ramp so the mother duck and her brood can get out of the yard and into the storeroom. She then helps them make their first journey to the river, guiding them through traffic and pedestrians. She believes it is the same mother duck who returns to have her ducklings in the safety of the enclosed backyard.

The *RSPB said it was unusual for ducks to nest in such a way but commended the shop’s staff for accommodating the mallard’s curious choice. A spokesperson told us, ‘Ducks tend to nest on the ground, so it’s quite unusual for one to nest on top of a high wall but it does happen. We have records of ducks nesting on balconies, especially if there is a lot of pressure for space. If this duck knows it has been safe on the wall in the yard in the past then she will go back.’

Judging by the large ears, this footballer is an African elephant.  The baby elephant playing in the water (top of page) may be an Indian elephant, however, I find it difficult to be sure because of the angle of the ears.

Even though we have fabulous special effects in the cinema and on DVD, we don’t have the old big top circus with a dozen elephants all able to do tricks like the above.  All we have of the old ‘Three ring circus’ is the saying and for those of us fortunate to have seen Billy Smart’s circus in the 1950s, wonderful memories.  My American cousins say that Barnum and Bailey had bigger and better elephants, however, they blew their cred with the claim that America invented the Elephant.

As we say – the old tricks are the best, this baby elephant still has a lot to learn!  See the funny elephant picture below.

Elephant’s Nest

elephants nest

Logic says that elephants just don’t nest in trees.  Close inspection reveals that the ‘Elephant’s nest’ is somewhat off the ground, thus the elephant could not have just sat on a bundle of sticks just off the ground.

When we magnify the picture it looks as though the tree is in sharp focus, but the elephant is slightly blurred.  Could it be that someone transposed a clear JPEG file of an elephant over another image of a very large nest?

However, when all is said and done, it would make a great picture to go with a pub called: ‘The Elephant’s Nest’

The Story of Elephant Painting

elephant painter

Firstly, Five is an unusual name, especially for an African Elephant.  Secondly, Five has come up with an unusual use for her trunk – she uses it to paint!

With help from her keeper, Five has painted more than 50 works of art.  Painting experts even think that her unique contemporary style is worthy of an exhibition exhibition.  Even better, her masterpieces are in demand and you could buy one at the West Midland Safari Park in Bewdley, Worcestershire.

Back to that strange name, Five was one of three African Elephants that were brought to England from an elephant orphanage in South Africa – when she was five years old.  That was back in 1998, thus she is 14 going on 15 in 2007.  Elephant ages and maturity are not unlike humans, thus Five would now be considered a teenager in the elephant world.

Elephants Story – Prevent Democracy in Sri Lanka

elephant boots

The Sri Lankan Daily News has informed Will and Guy that a herd of wild elephants blocked the access road for voters heading to vote in polling booths in Wellaveli, eastern Sri Lanka. Security forces had to use loud hailers to drive away the wild elephants after the villagers, in Wellaveli, complained that they were unable to vote. The police and army were able to draw away the herd
after a few hours and said the roads have now apparently been cleared.

Elephants Get Their Boots

Two Asian elephants have been fitted with breathable waterproof boots to relieve chronic foot lesions.  Keepers at the Singapore Zoo tried acupuncture and compresses, but they were not as effective as the boots.  Vets fitted the female elephants Jamilah and Tun with the special boots.  Tun, 20, has one front leg longer than the other.  Her problems started when a male elephant mounted her and caused her to buckle.

More Elephant Care

elephant leg

Mocha, a female Indian elephant, lost her right front leg when she stood on a landmine on the Thai-Myanmar border.  Mocha was severely injured and might have had to be put down.

Experts at the Friends of the Asian Elephant Hospital in northern Thailand’s Lampang province have come to her aid and manufactured and fitted a false leg.

The artificial limb is made from canvas the vets are hoping she can soon be set safely free on her own four feet again.  Will and Guy hope that when she is released Mocha will have a full and happy life, safe from poachers.

Differences between African and Indian Elephants

Before we continue telling animal jokes, let’s first understand the difference between African and Indian elephants.

The African elephants (Loxodonta africana) are the ones with the bigger ears.  African elephants are also taller and heavier than their Indian cousins (Elephas maximus).  A large African elephant could be 12ft at the shoulder and weigh 8 tons.  Mostly elephants amble serenely at human walking speed, but in a stampede, they could reach 25 mph, which is faster than an Olympic sprinter.

They say an elephant never forgets.  This is also good news for other elephants and they care for members of their family if they become ill or injured by poachers.

elephant trunks

In African elephants, both males and females have enlarged incisors which develop into the famous tusks.  Whereas, in Indian elephants, tusks development is much greater in males than females. Confusingly, some Indian male elephants don’t develop tusks, thus you cannot rely on the presence of tusks to determine the gender of an Indian elephant.

Another difference is in the shape of the back, the African elephants dip, and you could imagine a gigantic saddle fitting on their back.  The Indian elephant on the other hand has a level or slightly convex back, saddling would be more difficult.

If you get a close look at the trunk, the Indian elephant has only one ‘finger’ at the end of its trunk, whereas the African elephant has two lips or fingers.  The picture to the right also illustrates how the trunk is an extension of the nose.  While you cannot see the tips of the trunks in our pictures, you should be able to see from the ears that the ‘Polo elephant’ is Indian, while ‘Five’ the painting elephant has to be African.

It’s also worth checking the toes on the hind feet.  Both African and Indian elephants have five toes on the forelegs, so that does not help discriminate.  However, the hind legs may reveal a
difference.  Only three toes are a strong indicator of an African elephant, while five toes would almost certainly mean an Indian elephant.

That leaves the situation where you see four toes on the hind legs, most likely this is an Asian elephant.

Best Elephant Joke

Nick is standing at the customs desk at the ferry port with a large crate.

‘Anything to declare, jewelry, alcohol, livestock?’ barks the Customs officer. ‘Nothing’, replies Nick.

The Customs officer opens the crate, and there inside is an elephant between two slices of bread. ‘I thought you said no livestock?’ explodes the customs officer.

Nick looks at him with surprise and answers mildly, ‘What’s it to you what I have in my sandwiches?’

Cringing Elephant Joke

The town’s bank manager called the police station to report a robbery.

‘You’ll never believe what happened, Sergeant. A truck backed up to my bank, and the doors opened. Out comes these robbers and they lead an elephant out of the truck. The elephant then breaks through my plate glass window, sticks his trunk in, and sucks up all the money. Then the gang led the elephant back into the truck. The robbers closed the truck doors and the truck pulled away.’

The desk sergeant said, ‘Could you tell me, for identification purposes, whether it was an African elephant or an Indian elephant?’

‘How can you tell the difference?’ asked the bank manager.

‘Well,’ said the sergeant, ‘The African elephant has great big ears whereas the Indian elephant
has little ears. So which kind of elephant was used in the robbery?’

‘How should I know? I couldn’t see his ears,’ said the bank manager. ‘He had a stocking over his head.’

Interesting Facts About Elephants

  • A group of elephants can be called a ‘memory of elephants’, although a herd is a more common collective noun.  On a related theme, elephants follow cattle in that the females, males, and offspring are called, cows, bulls, and calves respectively.
  • The elephant’s memory is legendary, what is not so well known is they have a special ceremony for greeting a long-lost member of the herd. In this greeting ceremony, both elephants flap their ears, trumpet, and generally express joy.
  • It would be easy to be fooled into thinking that elephants drink through their trunks; in fact, they use the trunk as a funnel to collect water, but then pour it into their mouth.  Sometimes elephants choose to spray themselves with the water rather than drinking it.  Incidentally, there are no bones in an elephant’s trunk.
  • An elephant detective could track an elephant by following their individual footprints.  What would help such stalking is the elephant’s habit of using the same paths as their ancestors.
  • Elephants display ‘right-handedness’, not in their limbs, but in their tusks.  Close examination of an elephant’s tusks will reveal that one tusk has a blunter tip and is thicker than its less favored counterpart.  The reason for this difference is that in their natural habitat elephants use their tusk(s) for gathering food and digging for water.  Consequently, the tusk on their favorite becomes more developed but blunter.
  • Elephant’s ivory poses a terrible dilemma, it’s a wonderful and versatile material, but the fact that tusks are so valuable encourages poaching.  It seems particularly obscene to think of such a noble, sensitive, joyous animal suffering at the hands of barbaric poachers. All that Will and Guy can do about it is not to buy anything made of ivory.
  • The gestation period of mammals is in proportion to their size. Thus, pregnancy in mice lasts about 21 days, whereas in elephants it takes over 21 months.

Punters Choice: Tesco Horse Burgers

The Food Standards Agency detected horses in Tesco BEEF burgers.  In this age of DNA testing, how on earth did Tesco and other supermarkets think they get away with passing off horsemeat as beef?

The facts: Food Standards tested 27 beef products and found that 10 contained horse DNA.  That wasn’t all, a further 23 beef items contained pig DNA!

FSAI investigators said the findings raised concerns about “the traceability of meat ingredients and products entering the food chain”. They added that Jews and Muslims may have unwittingly eaten pork.
