From MineScape Wiki

Chickens are a type of domesticated bird kept as livestock by farmers, and are often found inside pens in the farms of Gielinor.

Chickens are one of the weakest enemies in MineScape, and are often killed by low-level players training their combat skills as they have very low defence and cannot deal damage to players: the chicken farms in Lumbridge are often crowded for this reason. Chickens will sometimes try to retreat when they have 1 hitpoint left.

Chickens count for bird Slayer tasks, which can be given by Turael.

Chickens are a source of several useful items, as when they are killed they drop raw chickens for Cooking, bones for Prayer, and 5 or 15 feathers for Fishing or Fletching. Feathers are usually in high demand, therefore killing chickens and selling their feathers can be somewhat profitable for low level players.

In most populated worlds, chicken coops are often full of bones, feathers, and raw chicken left by players training on the chickens. If one chooses to bury the bones and cook the chicken, they will be able to gain a small amount of Prayer and Cooking experience for free.

A variant type of chicken is attacked on Tutorial Island during the Magic tutorial.
