There are an equal number of male and female chickens; however, five chickens are absent from Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, two of which are male, and three of which are female. This includes Leigh, the only peppy chicken so far. Of the chickens, three are jock, one is cranky, two are lazy, one is smug, two are normal, one is peppy, three are snooty and one is big sister, who was formerly peppy. Betty, Hank, Hector, Leigh, and Rhoda are the only chickens who do not appear after Doubutsu no Mori e+.
