Does anybody know the history behind the Homegrown Chicken as a mascot?

Don’t get me wrong, the Chicken is cool, but I still don’t understand how it became the mascot. If anybody has any insight into this historical mystery, let me know.

  1. Cord Dada, the graphics designer for the early years came up with the chicken idea. We initially planned to add a new farm animal every year but the chicken just stuck.

  2. Can we go back to the idea of changing to different farm animals every year? Tell you what, I have the only laminated ticket from 2007 Homegrown I refused to give up, has a fucking chicken on it. I’ll admit, I fought the law here, and I won. I’ll start the bidding at three dollars.
