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 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.
