Chickens are docile, domesticated birds common throughout Skyrim, usually within cities and towns. Attacking NPC-owned chickens will earn a bounty, but you can legally harvest eggs from their nests for use in Alchemy. Chickens are mainly encountered in settlements without a wall, such as Riverwood.
- Chickens are confusingly labeled as "rabbits" by the game data (with an editor ID of
ChickenRace). The race stats were obviously copied from the rabbits race, but not fully changed.
- Chickens do not cluck when idle.
- This bug is fixed by version 2.0.0 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
