Lizard chickens are the shiny breed of chickens that may be raised on the player-owned farm. It can be obtained by breeding two chickens in the breeding pen or by trading with another player. They will always be female when obtained through breeding.[1] The only way to have a male lizard chicken is for the chicken to first have the chaotic trait and then to re-roll its name to Malcolm, or trade with other players who have done so. Rerolling the chaotic trait on a lizard chicken named Malcolm will revert it to a hen. As an item it will appear as one of the normal chicken variants, and will only appear as a lizard chicken when added to a pen. They eat vegetables, fruits, and seeds. When checked for produce, they will give 10 feathers, and an egg. In addition, as a special breed, they provide 20 swamp tar when checked.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • patch 4 February 2019 (Update):
    • Shiny animals now count as a wildcard for trait requests when selling to player owned farm NPC buyers, on top of the existing breed wildcard.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its examine text is a play on the saying that many seldom-eaten meats taste like chicken.
  • Lizard chickens being all female is a reference to the film/book Jurassic Park. In the park, to control breeding, the scientists ensure that all of the dinosaurs in the labs are born female. However, some dinosaurs change their gender because of how their DNA was created. The achievement for Lizard Chickens is also a reference to Jurassic Park.
