The programme follows three guys living through World War I - but for various reasons, they haven't quite made it out to the Front. Channel 4's airing the pilot tonight, and then they'll make a decision about whether they want a full series.
Here at Digital Spy, we decided we needed to find out a bit more about Chickens, so we went off to meet Simon, Joe and Jonny.
Watch our video interview below to see if Chickens is just The Inbetweeners set in World War I, whether they're taking liberties with history (is the German army really made up of elephants?) and why Jonny loved getting all dressed up...
Chickens, which is part of Channel 4's Comedy Showcase, airs tonight at 10.30pm.
