Description(s)

Descriptions are example(s) from a single individual. Variations may be numerous, and dependent upon species, gender, age, location, and other variables.


Chicken [Rooster/Hen] (Bleak Prospect, Chronides Farmstead, Ephebe)

This is a common red chicken. It's probably looking for something to eat, whilst keeping an eye out for cats. There is something inevitably self-important about chickens like this that seems to make children everywhere want to chase them.

  • Alignment: Neutral


Chicken (Dinky)

Details needed.

  • Alignment: Details needed.


Spring Chicken (Chronides Farmstead)

The chicken is well-feathered, and looks quite plucky, especially from the view of someone looking for something to fill a nice pillow with. She's a typical white hen, though she does seem a bit bouncier than most chickens, probably because of the springs attached to her feet.

  • Alignment: 1 degree of good


Jungle Cock (Klatch - Jungle)

This is a grumpy rooster, a primitive and stringy ancestor of the domestic chicken. He regards his surroundings with jerky movements of a red-combed head and arrogant, beady eyes. He seems to be fully conscious of the splendour of his silky plume of red and brown tail feathers.

  • Alignment: Neutral


Jungle Hen (Klatch - Jungle)

This is a brown hen, clucking and scratching comfortably around the leaf litter. She is rather plump, and regards the world with a startled air, as if it is always just about to offend her delicate and self-centred sensibilities.

  • Alignment: Neutral

Uses

  • The feather is acquired from the corpse and is used as a component in a variety of spells -

Special Notes

  • The Dinky chickens are only found in the day.
  • The presence of Chronides Farmstead chickens, like all birds at this location, is random.
  • The jungle cock/hen encountered in the Klatch jungles come in groups of 1 to 6. If an individual is attacked, they will not defend each other.
  • The Chronides Farmstead chicken appears to use the generic "bird" template, while other chickens use the "chicken" template.
  • The most common weight for tanned chicken skin is 3 3/9 lbs, with 3 2/9 lbs rare
  • Chickens can be acquired as a pet at the appropriate pet shop
