In a technical text, I read that author at the end of article says:

If you’re not chicken, do it now!

What means If you’re not chicken?

You can look up the meaning of chicken by simply looking it up in a dictionary. Voting to close as General Reference. –  coleopterist Feb 23 '13 at 7:13
This question may have fared better at the relatively new English Language Learners site. –  J.R. Feb 23 '13 at 9:42

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
