‘Why Did The Chicken?’ was an animal quiz show for children presented by TV vet Mark Evans.  The contestants had to answer questions about farm animals and won eggs rather than points.  The show ended with an egg hunt against the clock in the shape of a chicken.  There were two series, the first started going out 6/4/1994, with the second series starting exactly a year later in April 1995.  It was recorded in Studio A at Pebble Mill.  The series was produced by Jane Tarleton and the executive producer was Judy Whitfield.
