ABOUT:

The significance of chicken feet and bones varies, from natural curios, charms, talismans and fetish objects, offerings and cleanings, to tools of divination.

Chicken feet and bones are primarily used in both Voodoo, Hoodoo, and JuJu, as charms and talismans. Bones are used in rootwork and Obi and Dilloggun as casting and divination tools. The mingling of African traditions with Native and European forms of divination has produced many variations in hoodoo practices today.
