The Chicken Suit Guy is an exclusive Miniifigure released in 2013 as part of Series 9 with new hat piece that represents a chicken head with a hole that shows his face. The hat has an orange beak, two black eyes with white pupils, a red comb and a red wattle. He has a yellow head with an open, smiling mouth, showing his upper teeth, and brown eyebrows.
