How to Draw a Chicken for Kids
- Outline the body.
Start by drawing the torso. To do this, you need to sketch out a large circle, which visually resembles an egg lying on the side.
- Add the neck and head.
From the body, draw two lines as shown, and above these lines draw a small circular chicken head.
- Draw the comb.
Draw the wavy chicken comb on the head, and draw the circular chicken wattle just below.
- Add the eye and beak.
Draw the triangular, pointed beak of the chicken between the comb and the wattle. After that, draw a small chicken eye.
- Draw the wing.
Draw the wing on the body of the chicken. To do this, make the left part rounded, and the right one in the shape of pointed feathers.
- Draw the tail.
Now sketch a chicken tail, which, like the wings, needs to be drawn with the shape of feathers.
- Add legs.
Using straight lines, sketch out the chicken legs.

Chickens have different feather colors. You can color the chicken completely light orange or gray with red feathers. Color the comb and wattle bright red.
