Aubrie Christensen, 11, of Lindon, holds a chicken just after catching it as other children chase chickens during the Lindon Days Junior Rodeo held Friday, Aug. 10, 2018, at the Lindon Arena. The chicken chase closed the evening at the junior rodeo after events including mutton busting, the ribbon chase and the mayor's candy scramble. “The chicken chase and this whole event has been a staple in Lindon since the beginning of Lindon Days," explained Shylee Sweeten, coordinator of the Lindon Days Junior Rodeo. During the event, kids 12 and under chased a handful of chickens to the tune of the "Chicken Dance." “Once they catch the chicken, they get to keep the chicken. That’s their prize,” said Sweeten. Explaining that families aren't informed of the chase's prize, she said with a laugh, “It’s a surprise for everyone at the end." However, if the chicken-receiving family doesn't want the bird, the rodeo is happy to relocate the chicken to a suitable family.
