Chickens are one of the weakest enemies in RuneScape, and are often killed by low-level players training their combat skills as they have very low defence and cannot deal damage to players: the chicken farms in Lumbridge are often crowded for this reason. Chickens will sometimes try to retreat when they have 1 hitpoint left.
Chickens are a source of several useful items, as when they are killed they drop raw chickens for Cooking, bones for Prayer, and 5 or 15 feathers for Fishing or Fletching. Feathers are usually in high demand, therefore killing chickens and selling their feathers can be somewhat profitable for low level players.
In most populated worlds, chicken coops are often full of bones, feathers, and raw chicken left by players training on the chickens. If one chooses to bury the bones and cook the chicken, they will be able to gain a small amount of Prayer and Cooking experience for free.

- If a chicken is afflicted with poison or venom, instead of taking damage from the poison or venom, it will squawk, flap its wings, and lay an egg.
