Are you having dreams about chickens attacking you?
Any vivid dreams can stir up profound feelings and emotions. Having a dream about something like being attacked by a chicken - or any animal - can be upsetting.
Understanding what dreams mean, whether it’s from a spiritual or psychological standpoint often holds the key to stopping these dreams from occurring.
On a more powerful note, being able to interpret your dreams can also help you understand what’s happening on a subconscious level.
What Does It Mean When You Dream About Birds?
Taking a step back from chickens, dreams about birds, in general, are fairly common and often carry similar meanings.
Dreaming about birds is thought to symbolize one’s goals, hopes, and aspirations.
It depends what the birds are doing in your dreams, however. The happier the birds are, the happier and more positive you are about your future.
Birds are one of the animals that represent freedom. They’re able to fly and move around freely, which can be tied to the spiritual freedom you may be longing for.
On the other side, if the birds in your dreams are angry, destructive, or even attacking you, then this symbolizes negative events in your life.
It may also be a sign that your subconscious mind is holding on to negative feelings and experiences from the past.

What Do Dreams About Chickens Attacking Mean?
Seeing chickens in dreams is typically a symbol of good luck, and usually represents feelings of nurturing, mothering, and other close relationship ties.
This is because chickens have strong maternal instincts. They sit on their eggs for 21 days to incubate them, then they carefully feed and attend to their chicks.
If chickens are attacking you though, there are some negative connotations to this vision. One thing it represents for some people is fractured relationships in their lives.
If you’re currently experiencing some issues with close friends or family members, this could be manifesting as being attacked by chickens in your dreams.
It could also mean that you’re lacking that nurturing feeling or relationship in your own life. Both as a mother, like a mother hen, or as a child.

Why It’s Important to Interrupt Our Dreams
I’m sure you’ve had plenty of dreams that have left you with a strange or profound feeling, a kind of emptiness or longing to understand why you had the dream, right?
I know I have, and it’s completely normal to feel like this.
This is because not only does interrupting or understanding our dreams help stop that feeling of needing to know, it can help us better understand who we are.
As psychotherapist Jeffrey Sumber told PsychCentral, “Dream analysis is a key component in the process of becoming whole as a person.”
Dreaming is the process of our conscious mind and our unconscious mind communicating. Something we can’t do while awake or deliberately, which adds to the mystique of dreams.
We can process information or play out scenarios in our dreams that we can’t or don’t want to experience while awake.
This can be incredibly powerful and a way to connect with our deep, inner thoughts. As well as connecting on a spiritual or emotional level.
