Idiom: Handwriting

This week’s idiom puts a big grin on my face when I read it :D

handwriting like chicken scratch

"if your handwriting is very hard to read, it is like chicken scratch"

As you can see, my handwriting is really well described by the idiom. But what makes me grinned was the fact that this idiom is exactly the same as the one I use in my mother language. In Bahasa (Indonesian language), we call it “ceker ayam” which means chicken scratch. Somehow I feel bad to the chicken :p I’m curious whether this idiom is also used by other languages, does anyone know?
