How to Acquire

There are two possibilities:

  • Wild flocks of chicken may randomly spawn on a Grassland, or Moor, and will stay in one general area. Right-clicking a chicken will cause your character to chase it.
  • Build a chicken coop for breeding hens and cocks. When a chick is placed inside a chicken coop with sufficient fodder, it will turn into a Hen or Cock.

How to Use

  • Animal Husbandry enables you to breed chickens. A chicken coop, a cock and a hen are required to produce fertile Chicken Egg, that will hatch into chicks.
  • A hen can be slaughtered via the "Wring Its Neck" option to convert it into a Dead Hen.
  • If killed via combat, it will leave a Dead Hen as its corpse.
  • Hens require food, and if left in your inventory/storage will die, leaving a low quality Dead Hen. This will occur within 24 hours

Notes

  • If you do not have a Chicken Coop or fodder, you can keep your chickens alive longer than 3 days by releasing them and catching them again
  • Hunting wild chickens is viable source of Feathers, Entrails, and Bones in the early game. Pick them up, wring their necks, return to your camp/base when inventory is full and pluck/clean them there. All products except meat can be stockpiled for easy storage.
