Werner Thomas, a Swiss accordion player, wrote the basic melody for the Chicken Dance song in the late 1950's. In 1963, he began performing it at his restaurant. The people who bravely stood up and danced along often used sporadic movements that reminded Thomas of ducks and chickens. By the time the Chicken Dance arrived in America in the 1970's it had transformed into a set of movements with repeated "beak", "wing", and "tail" movements.
