A chick is a young chicken.
[Note: They seem to disappear after being placed in your inventory or a container for an extended period of time.]
Some players have noticed a glitch where if you capture a chick and butcher it, you get A mess, but if you release the chicken and kill it (punching, shooting, etc.) on the ground will be a dead chicken. This could be helpful as to not need to wait for chicks to mature to butcher them.
How to Acquire Edit
There are two possibilities:
- Wild flocks of chicken may randomly spawn on Grassland, Moor, or Heath. Right-clicking a chick will cause your character to chase it. The chick will flee, so running is necessary unless you are standing directly next to it. Once caught, it will appear in your inventory.
- Build a Chicken Coop for breeding hens and cocks. A fertile Chicken Egg will hatch into a chick, if brooded by a hen inside a chicken coop.
How to UseEdit
- When a chick is placed inside a chicken coop with sufficient fodder, it will turn into a hen or cock after 3 days.
- Chicks can be killed in the inventory via the "Wring Neck" option just as other inventory animals, but that does not result in a butcherable corpse, instead it will turn in to A mess
When the chicks are hatched, they will need to eat three times to grow into adult creatures. Each time they eat, their quality decreases if the fodder quality is less than their own quality.
