Quick Links

Midas’ return to Fortnite had some unintended consequences on the island, with the wildlife being affected ever since he was let out. If you’re wandering the island in Battle Royale or Zero Build, you’ll likely come across a shiny golden chicken clucking away as it wanders the wilds.

These golden chickens, and their eggs, will give you Midas’ favorite resource, which can then be turned into buffs to help you win the Battle Royale. It isn’t as easy as it sounds though, as you’ll first need to search for specific biomes where the avian flocks are known to spawn.

How To Use Golden Chickens

These new shiny chickens wander Fortnite’s island and can be found in many of the places where their non-gold brethren spawn. However, the real benefit comes once enough time has passed after the start of the match when they begin to lay golden eggs.

You can hunt the chickens and eliminate them for 12 Gold Bars each, but this would be a waste compared to farming their eggs. Right now, each of the Golden Eggs is worth 350 Gold Bars.

without having to complete an objective.

Since chickens aren’t restrained by how many eggs they can lay, you can sometimes find multiple clustered together after the match has progressed

Where To Find Golden Chickens

As with any of the wildlife on Fortnite’s island, it’s hard to know exactly where they’ll spawn at the start of each match. Instead, you can generally tell which biome they favor and can look there for them when you’re nearby. However, this isn’t a rule and chickens can sometimes be found in surprising locations.

The chickens tend to prefer the green and grassy areas of the map that aren’t in the darker Underworld biome.

When you’re using your glider or the wings, you can see the golden shine from the chickens when you’re in the sky. This also goes for Gold Eggs, which give off a similar shine to the chickens.
