Why put a chicken on the head of a soldier ?

Where have I seen that before? The first photo is an artistic perspective on our little flock. It put me in mind of a musical encounter I once had with the Italian Army, at a summer country show, while living in the Limousin (see my short video below). Is there any strategic reason why the Italian army, one and all, choose to wear a chicken’s arse on their heads?
