Chicken are wild animals commonly found in Forest and Desert biomes. Chickens are passive and will run from the player but unlike the stag or rabbit, they are slower than the player, and easier to see than a rabbit. If you want to conserve ammo it is suggested to use a melee weapon to kill them, as out running them is incredibly easy. Chickens can be a bit buggy sometimes, and will often stop in their tracks to peck the ground even when being chased which can throw the player off. Chickens are also able to attack players, but this is unknown to be a bug or intended as they have no animation and don't even have to be looking in the direction of the player.

Chickens will not drop any loot upon being killed but can be harvested, although for different items compared to the normal animal, instead of giving the player Animal Fat, and Large Bones, chickens give Feathers.

It is recommended to use a Bone ShivHunting Knife, or Machete when harvesting because it will provide the player with more resources than any other tool or weapon.
