Chicken fight is a traditional game that children enjoy playing around the neighborhood individually or as a group. It is also played as an exciting event on holidays or in marketplaces.
In the game, contestants raise one leg and grasp their ankle with both hands.
The contestants then hop on one foot and try to push their opponent off balance. The last person left standing wins.
Chicken fight requires strength, skill and a good sense of balance. It can be played one-on-one or by several people all at once.
