Big Red Chicken is a main character in Dora the Explorer.
As his name implies, Big Red Chicken is an oversized red bird. He had once been an extremely small chicken living on a hill, but after wishing upon the stars of a constellation in the shape of a chicken, he became larger than a house. Dora and Boots first heard about him when they read a storybook that told his tale; they set out in search of him afterwards, and became good friends.
Big Red Chicken's feathers are mostly scarlet. His comb is dark red, and his beak and legs are yellow.
Big Red Chicken appears in many episodes of Dora the Explorer. He debuted in "The Big Red Chicken," and was last seen in "Dora in Wonderland." He also appears in the "Return to the Rainforest" episode of the Dora and Friends: Into the City! series.
