Chickens are passive Creatures in Sea of Thieves which can be found on Islands. They can be captured in Chicken Coops to sell to the Merchant Alliance, especially at the request of their Trade Good Ledgers. As of the Anniversary Update, Chickens can now be killed for meat, which can be sold to The Hunter's Call. Their type does not affect the meat dropped.

Types of Chickens

There are four varieties of Chickens, each with its own price of Gold.

A Chicken is worth 10x more Gold when commissioned through the Merchant Alliance voyages.

Type No Voyage Merchant Voyage
White Feathered Chicken 10 - 30 Gold 100 - 300 Gold
Red Speckled Chicken 30 - 70 Gold 300 - 700 Gold
Black Plumed Chicken 70 - 150 Gold 700 - 1,500 Gold
Golden Chicken 150 - 300 Gold 1,500 - 3,000 Gold



When a chicken is killed it drops a piece of Chicken meat, which can be cooked and sold to The Hunter's Call or the Sovereigns for a lesser price.

The Chicken's appearance may have been inspired by the real-life Leghorn chicken.
