Chicken Shrine location.png

The Chicken Shrine is a small statue located near the original entrance of Zanaris. It is near the fairy ring that connects to the tool shed in Lumbridge Swamp.

By offering raw chicken to the shrine, players can travel to the Evil Chicken's Lair, home of the Evil Chicken at a certain point in Recipe for Disaster: Freeing Sir Amik Varze. The raw chicken is consumed when the player enters the Lair. A normal chicken egg spawns in front of the shrine - not to be confused with the evil chicken's egg for Recipe for Disaster: Freeing Sir Amik Varze.

Before activating the shrine with a raw chicken, equip an anti dragon shield or a dragonfire shield and/or drink any needed potions. There are black dragons lurking right inside the Shrine. They can hit over 1,000 life points with their dragonfire.


  • Using an egg on the shrine results in the message: "Nice idea, but nothing interesting happens."
  • The way the shrine is set up makes reference to the long time debate of "which came first, the chicken or the egg?"
