People will support the idea at weddings, parties of all sorts, on festivals, etc. It is a checked fact!

The beginning of it all can be named the 1970es. At that time not a very well-known music group has recorded a song, which was called “A Duck Song”. When it came to the radio stations and people heard it, they liked it so much, that the copies were sold extremely quickly and the song has been spread further. Later at some time when is was obvious that people like it so much and dance, it was made a decision to try the song on the Oktoberfest. To support the event, it was offered to wear duck costumes right there and dance. But the problem was that the costumes were not enough for everybody and people decided to wear the costumes of chickens instead. With the time it all influenced what we see now. After that the song was named “Chicken Song” and it has been left till now.
