Putin mentioned the Chicken today, right after my last post. Even I had to turn back around to the TV, The quote is below. Sorry Putin Spirit has a very different opinion on your Chicken scenario and they predicted that two years ago. Just a Belarus and Lukashenko join the fight. Little do they know how doomed they are.

I think Biden’s promise to deliver Patriot missiles to Ukraine is the key factor here. Despite Russian claims to the contrary, Putin seems to be scared of a humiliation on the battlefield, which would definitely guarantee his downfall.
In fact, the chicken metaphor as expressed by Putin is ominous, and can be interpreted as “this is what we have been able to do so far, but be patient: the show will go on later”, or “we took these Ukrainian regions now, but will grab more in the future”, etc.
Based on my previous post, I suggest an alternative interpretation to the identity of the chicken; I wonder if this could make any sense. So, as it seems obvious that Putin himself refers to Russia as the chicken, would it be excluded that the prediction still refers to the fate of Putin, instead of that of Lukashenko? This would also be backed by the striking similarity in the outcome in both cases (chicken vs. Samurai). So, Belarus would gain its freedom as a result of the fall of Putin. As for Lukashenko, an agreement would be made to remove him from power peacefully (cf., Lukas… an agreement.. rapid.. your out!).
I honestly believe someones throat is going to be cut. Why show it as a Chicken? Part of the reason its a chicken and sword and implications, is symbolic jester, so I DONT have to see the actual event. Watching that is grading. It sucks the life off you. So symbolism is used. The more symbolic it is, the violent the reality seem to be.
