A Chicken is a level 1 monster found in many areas, most notably the chicken coops near Lumbridge and the shack next to the sheep fields.

It is useful in dropping raw chicken for Cooking and Summoning, bones for prayer, and 5 to 15 feathers for fishing or fletching. Many players buy feathers for fishing or fletching, so it is possible to make a profit by killing many chickens. Also you can kill these if you get a slayer task for Birds.

Many newer players also kill chickens for combat experience, as they are low-level and rarely do any damage (and even when they do, they cannot hit over one hitpoint of health). Even high leveled players may find chickens useful for food if they find themselves low on health near a chicken coop, or as a source of feathers for fletching or fishing.

Chickens will sometimes try to retreat when they are at 1 HP, but it is not common since players often kill them in one hit.

In most populated free play worlds, chicken coops are full of bones and raw chicken which are left by players training on the chickens. If one chooses to bury the bones and cook the chicken, they will gain a decent amount of Prayer and Cooking experience. Raw chicken can also bought from Canifis and Port Sarim food stores.

To get from level 1 attack,strength or defence to level 99 a player would need to kill 1,086,203 chickens

Players are required to carry a chicken in Recruitment Drive.
