This talk page is for discussing the Golden chinchompa (Squeal of Fortune) page.


I just got 1 Lard while fishing; and Cinnamon while constructing. I think the lists are wrong; or perhaps unique to player. Emptylord (talk) 03:32, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

I've since obtained 2 Cinnamon from fishing (total of 3) and 1 more Lard from fishing (total of 2). Unless hauling up boots and gloves grants a different type of experience. Emptylord (talk) 04:02, September 6, 2013 (UTC)
Do you get agility experience from barbarian fishing in Catherby? I'm getting strength experience, but that isn't on any of the lists for chin food.Emptylord (talk) 04:04, September 6, 2013 (UTC)
seems more likely to obtain the listed food type in the skills listed but possible to gain any of the three.
barbarian barehanded fishing is strength and fishing xp. 04:25, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

gp per feeding formula

for those more skilled in math

small amount of gp from the baby stage each time you feed it with the neutral or loved food type.

2573 total lvl

loved food gives 56973gp

neutral food gives 45579gp

hated food gives 0gp

young stage says will give a medium amount, adult a large amount. 04:34, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

I think it's Total/Skill level based as well... . . . Yours, Void Knight banner Enquidou Talk Quest Icon Crest . . 20:06, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

The gp values in the table for baby stage loved food isnt accurate.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 23:10, September 7, 2013.
It does seem to be total level based 02:35, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

Keeping it

Is there any way i can keep my chinchompa with me?? I mean without having it to explode? Demigod 001 (talk) 18:49, September 6, 2013 (UTC) 

Doubtful, as Jagex said themselves they would vanish afterwards... IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 18:59, September 6, 2013 (UTC)
It depends: for the entire duration of this stupid Squeal event, it is easy to keep your chinchompa without having it explode; simply do not feed it. This chinchompa will not run away at 100% hunger, it is not like other pets that will run away if you don't feed them. (Once this stupid Squeal event is over though, all golden chinchompas will indeed vanish.) 20:07, September 6, 2013 (UTC)
Ftr, only cats run away at 100% Hunger... IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 03:49, September 7, 2013 (UTC)
Also... you can feed it with a POH pet feeder: hunger will go away, but it will not grow. Maybe you can even place it in a POH pet house. . . . Yours, Void Knight banner Enquidou Talk Quest Icon Crest . . 10:20, September 7, 2013 (UTC)

Food liking

Just fed my chin, and it said: "Your chinchompa eats 5 curried lard nuggets without complaint.", I assume this is the "Tolerate" option in the table? IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 06:08, September 7, 2013 (UTC)

Correct. The dislike and love options are more obvious. Nothing special here. (talk) 07:53, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

Money rewards are not correct

We're still trying to get the ranges correct. If you get something out of bounds, please edit the bounds to reflect it. MolMan 20:25, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

Food Liking

Will the chinchompa always like the same food throughout the other stages? Just wondering if I should try to stock up on the one it likes or if it will change.. 23:48, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

Mine just grew from baby to young, and still liked caffeine as it did before. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 18:15, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

Money amount for baby chin

Why does baby chin only give me like 9k for its favorite food? 23:53, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

The amount of coins you get depends on your total level. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:39, September 9, 2013 (UTC)


Does anyone know where the trivia information re. the name flopsy/avatar came from? I am curious... I assumed that since both Flopsy and Peter are available, that they were in reference to Peter Rabbit. And it could just be a coincedence. I was just wondering if this nugget of trivia came from Jagex, or was just someone speculating. :) 11:27, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

The trouble with trivia is it is often very subjective. There are rare cases where a homage is directly confirmed by the creator, but usually all we have to go on is strong correlation; this creates situations where something that one person thinks is an obvious homage is deemed unlikely by another. For example my linking of the name "Boomer" to the bloated, exploding zombie in the game "Left 4 Dead" was, as far as I could see it, such a parallel on so many levels that I thought it worth including. Someone else didn't, and deleted it. There's a little "war" going on where someone keeps adding a name because it appeared in "Finding Nemo" once, and someone else thinks that isn't relevant and removes it. One universal constant in this Wiki, it seems, is that for every piece of trivia mentioned, there is at least one person who finds it to some degree objectionable enough to want it gone.

When it grows

My baby chinchompa just grew into a young one, and gave me 391,693 coins and 20 notes adamant bars (at total level 2462). I fed it its favourite food, but the chat box didn't mention that as it does otherwise. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 17:45, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

Young => Adult chinchompa (using favourite food) at total level 2462 = 10 Dragon bones and 783,385 coins. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 17:22, September 10, 2013 (UTC)
Adult => BANG (using favourite food) at total level 2462 = 3 Uncut dragonstones, 10 Dragon bones, 6 Uncut diamonds and 2,271,817 coins (and the grave stone). IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 14:05, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Got 10 noted grimy torstol, 6 noted uncut diamonds, and 1,782,252 coins when my Golden chinchompa exploded Jamamon (talk) 19:59, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Multiple Golden chinchompas

My first chinchompa exploded, and I received a second one from the Squeal of Fortune. Its favourite food is the same as that of my previous one, which is Curried lard nuggets. It may be that all chinchompas for one player like the same kind of food. Jamamon (talk) 20:16, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Can confirm that's not true. I'm on my third chinchompa and each have liked a different food :( D305 (talk) 20:29, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, thanks. Jamamon (talk) 20:49, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Strangely though, I just got my third chinchompa and it likes the same food as the last two. Jamamon (talk) 20:58, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

The chance that your second one likes the same food is 1 in 3. The chance that your second and third do, is 1 in 9. That's not entirely unlikely, then. Obsidian charm Magma2050 T C E Obsidian charm 21:17, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Art for the Golden Chinchompa?

I saw this banner on the RuneScape page and was wondering why none of the official art has been posted to the wiki. 00:19, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

We have an editor who dutifully uploads all of the main page banners and adds them to this page I am linking. Small recharge gem AnselaJonla Slayer-icon 00:29, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
Neat, I found another version here! 00:43, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
