Chickens are a type of 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 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 hardly any damage. These players can also cook their raw chicken drops, which provide 200 life points each, allowing them to prolong their stay. Chickens, like most birds, count for bird Slayer assignments, which are given by the slayer masters Turael and Spria.

Chickens are the primary source of several useful items, as they drop raw chickens and lay eggs for Cooking and Summoning, bones for Prayer, and 5 to 15 feathers for Fishing or Fletching. Because of this, killing chickens can be very profitable for low-level players.

Rarely, a chicken will respawn by falling from the sky and saying, "I have returned". This variant drops the off-hand rubber chicken, which is needed to complete the Slayer collection log.
