Chickens can be killed at the farm north-east of Lumbridge, or at Fred the Farmer's farm, just north of the Combat Academy. Raw chicken can be sold at the Grand Exchange for 938 coins, and bones can be sold at the Grand Exchange for 266 coins. Chickens also commonly drop 5, 10 or 15 feathers that sell for 13 coins each.

As chickens have very few life points, a fast hitting weapon such as a scimitar is recommended over a slower one such as a two-handed sword. Once a full inventory of feathers, 13 raw chicken and 13 bones is obtained, it is recommended to run to the Bank chest, located at the Combat Academy, north of Lumbridge Castle. This is considerably quicker than travelling to the top floor of Lumbridge Castle, taking around 30 seconds. Alternately, Home Teleport to Lumbridge Castle, and then run back to the farm, taking approximately 90 seconds. Killing chickens is a decent way for lower levels to make money in free-to-play, but it is not recommended for players with higher combat or other useful skills.

Due to the fact that raw chicken is needed in low-level Summoning, players should attempt to sell it at a higher price. The supply for raw chicken is low, while the demand is reasonably high.
