So I have this chicken animated in a movieclip and when I place it on the stage, it just sits there playing the animation but doesn't move around. I just want it to walk around on the stage when the animation is playing. I don't want this to be controlled by arrow keys or anything and I'm using AS3 btw.
If you want it to constantly be moving around, then look into using an Event.ENTER_FRAME listener with an event handler function that is incrementally changing the position properties (x and/or y) that represent the direction(s) in which you wish the movieclip to move.

public class demo extends MovieClip
private var obj:MovieClip;
public function demo()
obj = new MovieClip();
private function enterFrameHandler(e:Event):void
// if you want to move x, use this.
obj.x += 5;
// if you want to move y, use this.
obj.y += 5;
