#Universal Chicken

Universal Chicken is a VNC client for MacOS. It is based on Chicken, from the following repository:


This project has been updated to produce a Signed and Notarized Universal application that should run on Intel and Apple Silicon Macs running MacOS 10.15 and newer.

The venerable Chicken application had not been updated in many years and as a 32-bit application, ceased to work on MacOS 10.14. Luckily, the code itself works properly when compiled as a 64-bit application, so getting things running on modern MacOS was a relatively straightforward process.

The notes below are included from that repository for historical purposes.

Description Chicken is a VNC client for Mac OS X. A VNC client allows remote access to another computer over the network. Chicken is based on Chicken of the VNC.

#Purpose of this Repository

This is based on the latest (r837) revision from https://sourceforge.net/p/chicken/code/HEAD/tree/

The difference is that it supports native fullscreen support, which in fact is just recompiling for Mac OS Platform > 10.7
