U.S. & World History – A little known fact about a game that became very popular in the 1970s is how it began. It was originally about some chickens dressed up as roosters, and lived in the basements of castles in England during the 1400s. The chickens would get points by being judged on how much they looked like males. The format was eventually changed in the early 1970s, but the original title of the game was called “Dungeons and Drag Hens”.
