A small, flightless bird commonly used as a farm animal, raised for its meat and eggs.

Males may be called roosters while females are known as hens. Both are recognizable from other birds by their combs - a red, fleshy, crown-like appendages on their heads. Roosters have larger combs, longer tail feathers, and an overall more colorful plumage. Young chicken are referred to as chicks and are typically yellow in color, though other feather colorations also exist.

On average, adult chicken range from 23 to 28 inches tall, weighing anywhere between 4 to 7 pounds, with hens being raised for eggs being typically the largest and heaviest.

Being the smallest and the easiest type of animal to capture and raise for its meat, the chicken's reputation is largely centered around how delicious it is, or how afraid and defenseless it is compared to a typical inhabitant of the Mazes. To call someone a "chicken" is to insult or make fun of them for being scared. Chicken- and chicken egg-based dishes, much like in the real world, are considered to be a staple of cuisine in the Mazes, in both human and youkai cultures, as evidenced by the large amount of food items using chicken products.

Maze chicken are considered to be a fully domesticated animal, largely found in farms. Though wild chicken still exist in the Mazes, biologists are quite confused as to how these animals - not exactly known for their ability to open doors - have survived for so long in the world. Current theories speculate that they were never meant to inhabit the indoor sections, instead preferring the outside areas. Most of the chicken found in the UA are lost or stolen individuals from farms, sometimes used by local raider or gangster populations as means of obtaining eggs, when they are not mercilessly hunted down for their, admittedly, delicious meat. After all, who could refuse free chicken?
