Chicken animated short

This is an animated short that was created for the Chicken Contest from Nimble Collective. The rig and environment was provided. I just added certain props, scaled the rig to create the baby chicken, and of course created the animation.

The underlying idea to this short was that chicken lay so many eggs, it feels like they can't even control it. What if they had to raise it as well? For me this seemed like enough story for this animation. In the end I conveyed the cycle with sound. The problem here was, that it was a facebook competition, and facebook has sound turned off by default. So many people didn't get the end. Since this was a Blender contest I animated there. I have done a lot of work in Blender, but I haven't done that much animation there since I usually use Maya. It was different but a nice experience nonetheless.
