The recommended place to kill chickens.

Chickens can be killed at the farm north-east of Lumbridge. Raw chicken can be sold at the Grand Exchange for 99 coins, and bones can be sold at the Grand Exchange for 68 coins. Chickens also commonly drop 5 or 15 feathers that sell for 2 coins each.

Cooked chicken sometimes sells for more than raw chicken, so players may wish to check the prices and then cook them before selling them. The total per chicken killed is 167 to 197 coins. Also, an unlimited supply of raw chickens may be taken from the crates in the food shop in Port Sarim and banked in Draynor Village (or the bank deposit box on docks by the monks) provided the player has begun the Pirate's Treasure quest and is wearing a white apron.

As chickens have very few Hitpoints, a fast hitting weapon such as a scimitar is recommended over a slower one such as a two-handed sword. Once a full inventory of feathers, 13 raw chicken and 13 bones is obtained, it is recommended to use Home Teleport to Lumbridge Castle, and then run back to the farm, taking approximately 90 seconds. Killing chickens is a decent way for lower levels to make money in free-to-play, but it is not recommended for players with higher Combat or other useful skills.
