Chicken Feet

Dried Chicken Feet are used in the practice of Hoodoo, as well as other magical traditions, for protection and for enemy work. The feet are believed to be powerful protection against evil doers and are believed to work by magically "scratching" one's enemy. Many practitioners will use a chicken foot as part of an anti-theft spell which is usually hung in the open, such as from a rear-view mirror or above a door.. In such use the foot represents the threat of magical retaliation. In a nutshell, a chicken foot is a non-verbal means of communication by which a warning is sent to any would-be-thief that if they steal then they will be magically "f*cked up". Chicken Feet are usually used in pairs and placed in a "x" manner by crossing them. Chicken Feet can also be used alone as part of a charm, fetish, or for inclusion into a mojo bag.

Certain online sources indicate that Chicken Feet are used for good luck. Though this use is logical, based on the notion of the foot grasping luck and money, it is not traditional.

The most powerful Chicken Feet come from black-feathered fowls. For images of Chicken Feet, click HERE.

Note: Chicken Feet are not obtained via sacrifice. They are obtained via natural slaughter of chickens for food. The Chicken Feet that can be purchased at occult stores and other curio shops are usually provided by local farmers.

What if one took there child to see a lady and remembers being scratched on the hand but that is all. How would the child as an adult know what was done?

I woke up from a srange dream this morning. I was the main focus. I walked into a ritual involving chicken feet and their legs. They were laid out on tin foil and being shaped into a stick figure.

So I'm cleaning out my car and found a chicken foot under my seat that was recently put there.I didn't do this. What does that mean??

Have you stolen anything recently, or had something stolen from you? Or have you, could you have angered someone that does root work or any work in the dark arts? Chicken feet are commonly used in hoodoo, but they are also placed on or over property to Warn thieves of magical punishments that await them be they tempted to steal one's property

It is a tribal practice that is used to cleanse the child of illness, evil spirits, or inherit curses that could be passed down.
