    It's called a stink eye because of the way the chicken looks to a certain object. Otherwise I'm out of ideas!

    I never heard the term myself till a couple years ago, and it was here I heard it. That term wasn't in my experience.

    Quote:Me too. But it does sort of describe a certain "look" that both people and chickens can give. It's a look of disgust and warning.
