A Golden Chicken is an animal obtained by placing a Golden Egg in an Incubator. The first golden egg can be obtained in three different ways after reaching 100% Perfection:

A Golden Egg requires 150 hours to incubate, or 75 hours with the Coopmaster Profession. A Golden Chicken matures 3 days after hatching.


The Golden Chicken can produce a Golden Egg every morning (if it was fed the prior day), which sells for Gold.png500g. The Golden Egg can be used in cooking recipes calling for an egg. Golden eggs can also be placed in the Mayonnaise Machine to produce 3 gold-quality Mayonnaise, which sells for Gold.png285g each.
