Flaming Chicken


Name:Flaming Chicken
Drops:Charcoal, Cooked chicken, Feather

The flaming chicken is a chicken that has been set on fire. This makes it hostile, and cause fire to spread to nearby flammable blocks.


The flaming chicken spawns when a regular chicken is set on fire. The player can do this using flint and steel. They can also do it by throwing a fire egg at a regular chicken


The flaming chicken drops 1-2 charcoal, 1 cooked chicken, and 0-2 feathers.


The flaming chicken bounces around continuously and repeatedly bawk. It attempts to follow the player to damage them, doing a heart of damage a second. It has a red glow around it and gives off red particles. It leaves a trail of fire wherever it goes, which can be very dangerous when in wooden areas or forests.

The flaming chicken lays a fire egg every so often, which can be used to spawn more flaming chickens.

The flaming chicken has a lot more health than a regular chicken, however it can be turned back into a normal chicken if it comes into contact with water.


The flaming chicken does not take damage from fire, however it is not immune to lava, which could be a bug.

Like regular chickens, flaming chickens are immune to fall damage.

23 Defeat a Flaming Chicken. Kill a flaming chicken.
