Chicken Dreams

Occasionally, I dream about chickens. I’m not proud of it, and I’m not ashamed of it. I’m just sayin’. There’s a chicken in WARNING! PLUG FOR BOOK! SAGE END OF PLUG, but this is different. I dream of at least half a dozen, and I’m always gathering eggs. A lot of the eggs usually break.

Now, I’ve poked around, looking at online dream interpretation sites, and found the meaning. Dreaming about chickens and eggs means that I’m proud, worried about many things, cowardly, gossipy, needing to sacrifice something to achieve my goals, and more.

Me, I think it means I like chickens and eggs.

What do you think?

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Have a character dream of chickens and eggs and make that mean something specific to him or her.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Well, in my story I dream a lot of chickens and eggs too. What that means specifically to me is that my dreams are even more boring than my actual life …

    I think that your chicken dreams means that you are afraid of doing something and because of it, your are depriving yourself from having those wonderful thing in life like the eggs you are collecting in your dreams. Thanks for hearing our thoughts about it. 🙂

    I think your dream means you need to sacrifice some particular things and live plainly before you start to be prosperous (my idea about gathering the eggs). You will start to reap what you sow in time. Just keep moving on like a chicken. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks, Emilia! “Just keep moving on like a chicken.” lol! Maybe it means I need to cross the road to get to the other side. 😉

    You would usually dream of what has been constantly on your mind. And you can dream of something that you have been thoughfully thinking. I think you dreamt of eggs and chickens because you have been thinking about it, or as you have said, it’s because you like them

      Calra, I agree, but chickens and eggs aren’t on my mind all THAT much. I tend to think it’s representative of something else I have on my mind, that gets encoded as chickens I’m caring for and eggs that are fragile.
