A chicken was a domesticated, flightless bird that could be found in many places across Faerûn.
These small creatures were covered in feathers, and had small beaks. Chickens were valued not only for their flesh but also for the eggs they laid, and were considered a delicacy in many farms and cities.
- Inns such as the Watchful Eye in Espar served chicken in pastries, and the Sleeping Cat in Wheloon served the meat in pies.
- In Neverwinter, chicken liver was one of the many common fillings used in savory pies.
- One of the material components for the cloak of fear spell was the tail feathers of a chicken or a vulture.
- Mages could often (accidentally) transform themselves, or others, into chickens.
- One of the zulkirs of the Red Wizards of Thay, known as Merdrith, could animate a magical hut that had large chicken legs.
