Chickens are a type of domesticated bird kept as livestock by farmers, and they are often found inside pens in the farms of Gielinor. Chickens are one of the weakest enemies in RuneScape, with some chickens having the same amount of life points as a mere rat. They are often killed by low-level players training their combat skills, as they have very low defence and deal barely any damage. These players can also cook their raw chicken drops, allowing them to prolong their stay. Chickens, like most birds, count for bird Slayer assignments, which are given by Turael.

Chickens are the primary source of several useful items, as when they are killed they drop raw chickens for Cooking, bones for Prayer, and 5 to 15 feathers for Fishing or Fletching. They also serve as a source for eggs for Cooking, as every few minutes they lay one. Feathers are a commonly traded item due to their use in fishing and fletching, therefore, killing chickens and selling their feathers can be somewhat profitable for low level players.

Many low-level players also kill chickens for combat experience, as they have very low defence and rarely do any damage. Chickens will sometimes try to retreat when they have 1 health point left. The chicken farm in Lumbridge is often crowded. Chickens count as birds for a Slayer assignment and can be assigned by Turael (3 exp per/kill).

In most populated worlds, chicken coops are often full of bones, feathers, eggs, and raw chicken left by players training on the chickens. If one chooses to bury the bones and cook the chicken, they will gain a decent amount of Prayer and Cooking experience. Raw chicken can be bought from the Canifis and Port Sarim food stores and is required in several quests.
