Make an oval shape for the chicken’s eye and add a triangular shape for the beak, which is split in half.

Use curved lines to depict these elements on the chicken’s head and neck.

Add a wing on the side of the chicken in a half-circle and a zigzag line.

You can depict this detail with rounded lines at the back of the chicken’s torso.

Depict two identical details using semicircles and straight lines.
