Chickens is a British sitcom that was first broadcast on Channel 4 as a television pilot on 02 September 2011, as part of the channel’s Comedy Showcase season of comedy pilots.
It was then followed by a six-episode series that was commissioned on Sky One and broadcasting began on 22 August 2013 and ended on 26 September 2013.
The show is about three men who do not go off to fight in the First World War and consequently become social outcasts in their village.
Cecil confides in a friend about his fallen foot arches, but feels he is being systematically emasculated by a lack of male company, and sets out to assert his manhood. Meanwhile, George goes on strike over the decision to remove German from the school curriculum, so Headmaster decides to replace him with Bert, whose unorthodox style proves a hit with the pupils and Winky.
