The footsoldier of the Thunderbirds is an aggressive zergling-type unit. What it lacks in individual strength, it compensates for with its sheer numbers, overwhelming enemies with floods and floods of little chickens. A good riot unit is recommended for stopping them.

Tactics and Strategy

Use something that can kite it reliably or kill them in huge numbers. Raiders and riots are a good counter.

Stardusts are able to hold off many Chickens. Use them in large numbers.
