#Meltober 05: Chicken

During the month of October is #Inktober! Each day has a single-word prompt, but instead of inking something, I'll be designing a Magic: The Gathering mechanic to fit the word. This is called #Meltober, named after "Mel", the more mechanically-inclined counterpart to "Vorthos" of the aesthetic profile spectrum.

Today's prompt is: "chicken"

With a "chicken" prompt, I immediately thought of Unglued's iconic funny race creature type. I wanted to tie in some kind of mechanic for those creatures, but there are so few cards that are Chickens or make Chickens. Thus, I looked to what could be honorary chickens. So, any Birds that are resting on something are honorary chickens. :) And then you just make a batch term called "poultry pal" to group together anybody who supports the chicken lifestyle!

The flavor text is a reference to Poultrygeist's flavor text. :)
