Big Red Chicken is a main character on Dora the Explorer. As his name implies, he is an oversized red bird and one of Dora and Boots' best friends. He has appeared in many episodes.

Official Description

Big Red Chicken is a big friend, so big that when Dora first met him, she thought he was a hill! Silly, comical, and always on hand for a fiesta, he loves to do magic tricks, host parties, and play carnival games. He can sometimes act as an adult; he even officiated the Grumpy Old Troll’s wedding! If there’s a party or big event around, so is he!


Big Red Chicken has a red body with red wings and a yellow beak. He has white eyes with black pupils and yellow feet.

Episode appearances

Big Red Chicken made his initial appearance in the first episode of the first season. In "Return to the Rainforest", an episode of Dora and Friends: Into the City!, he can be seen making a brief cameo appearance alongside other Dora the Explorer characters.
