Incredibly messy handwriting that is nearly impossible to read. Usually the only person who can read it is the person that wrote it. Sometimes not even they can read it after a while. The writing looks like the footprints and/or scratches chickens leave in the dirt hence the name.

Really bad hand writing that only the person who wrote it can read it. Most often it just looks like scribbles.

My writing.
1) Used as a description of poor writing when it resembles the marks left in sand by a gaggle of chickens.
2) the act of scratching a chicken..or using a chicken to scratch yourself

Excessively messy, unreadable handwriting. Usually similar to; if not, a serial killer's handwriting.
Man I couldn't read the note he wrote me. It was straight up chicken scratch, on the real.
