Calvin as a Chicken

A chicken was one of the animals Calvin turned into during the first Transmogrifier Gun story arc.

Calvin originally intended to be turned into a pterodactyl, but the gun's telepathy trigger read Hobbes' fixation on lunch instead. He was hungry for chicken, and Calvin said he was glad he wasn't hungry for a hot dog.
