The electricity is conducted in tissue or organism due to the high 
concentration of electrolyte contents such as potassium, sodium and also 
many polar biomolecules (usually very weak). Hence, chicken can conduct 
electricity like all of us can. However, conductivity can vary depending 
on the contact. It may conduct more if it is probed deep into the tissue 
with a wet contact. You can measure conductivity using simple arrangement 
of probe and a multimeter or resistance meter.
