    'Ello everyone!

    As there seems to be a lack of guides of how chicken breeding works with the chickens mod and hatchery (or the ones that are there, have only a small percentage of chicken types), it seemed fitting that I make a simple guide for our lovely community. Considering I have gathered 43 types chickens so far. #HumbleBrag (Note: I'm not an expert, there are some things that I have yet to learn myself. I'm just laying out the basics)


    Some tips before you get started:
    • You need to use animal nets to place chickens in nesting pens.
    • Nesting pens make breeding easier. Chicken will breed with adjacent (cardinal directions only) chickens. They also collect drops.
    • Make some hatchery nests. You can place the eggs in there to hatch after awhile instead of throwing eggs and hoping you hatch a chicken.
    • Chicken feeders increase drop rates and help baby chicks grow faster.
    • Chickens can be bred to 10/10/10. This decreases drop time, ergo increasing drops. To see the stats of a chicken, use a chicken analyzer!
    • Hen Houses collect drops in a 9x9 area.
    • Any living entity that "sits" on eggs in a hatchery nest will make it hatch faster. Lit redstone lamps help as well! (credit: Soudescolado via Reddit)
    • NEVER hit a chicken with a stick... unless you are prepared! (credit: Soudescolado via Reddit)
    Now lets get into how to obtain chickens. The percentages are the likeliness of a new chicken in each category, unless specified otherwise.

    Hey there. Avid chicken breeder, noticed some were missing, so did some research and drew up as best as possible to match yours, so you can edit it in as needed.

    I have work restlessly trying to get all of the chicken's listed and have managed to get them all to 10/10/10. According to the Chicken modpack and More Chickens modpack there appears to be two other chickens not listed here and not listed in the current version of Sky Factory 3. They are Draconium and Awaken Draconium. I have tried with my own attempts with receipt posted online and all efforts to do so have fail. Can anyone confirm that you can't get them.

    Post is outdated and will not be updated as this does not pertain to what we run. If in the future it becomes relevent, I will update it.
