A Chicken

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.

With Hearthfire installed, your steward can buy you up to three chickens for your homestead if you add an animal pen.


  • 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.
