Golden Chickens are a type of Chicken in Sea of Thieves. The Golden Chicken can be caught inside a Chicken Coop and sold to the Merchant Alliance for Gold and Reputation (and Emissary Value when sailing as Trading Company Emissaries). Alternatively, chickens can be killed for Chicken Meat, which can then be cooked and eaten for Health or sold to The Hunter's Call for Gold and Reputation.


Chickens can be found roaming around in groups on Islands, minding their own business. Chickens have very little health and drop raw Chicken Meat when killed. Any Chickens that die to Fire or Explosives may leave behind Burnt or Cooked Meat instead.

Chickens are one of the three Animals that are valuable to the Merchant Alliance Trading Company. The Merchant Senior Traders on Outposts offer Merchant Voyages that may send players in search of Chickens to be captured and delivered to a specific Outpost by a specific time. Golden Chickens may be one of the Animals required for capture in a Merchant Contract. To capture a Chicken, players need to hold a Chicken Coop in hand and hold down the Primary Interact Button near them. Chicken Coops can be picked up from any Senior Trader at Outposts when Chickens are requested in the Merchant Contract. Chicken Coops can also randomly be found on Islands.

Chickens inside Chicken Coops can still die from any source of damage meaning that they need to be kept safe from any source of harm.

Chicken Coops cannot be sold empty and are only valuable with a Chicken inside.


Golden Chickens captured inside Chicken Coops can be sold for an un-commissioned reward or a commissioned reward when a Merchant Contract for the chicken is issued. Alternatively Chicken Meat from a killed Chicken can be sold to The Hunter's Call.


Golden Chickens inside Chicken Coops can be sold to:

The following is the reward chart for the sold un-commissioned Chicken:

Emissary Grade Gold (Min.) Gold (Max.) Emissary Value

If Crews have an active Merchant Contract Commission, requesting the delivery of a captured Golden Chicken to a specified Senior Trader by a set time, they can earn 10 times as much gold and 15 times as much Emissary Value for the delivered animal. This bonus does not apply when sold to the Reaper's Bones Company.
