Chickens are animals in Age of Mythology that can be killed for food. With few hit points and no attack, they are easy to kill and a safe method of gathering food. However, it is better to gather, hunt, or herd animals first, as they have faster gather rates.
Due to their use of the WildCrops unittype flag, they and Berry Bushes are gathered at the same rate, meaning Berry Bushes are a more efficient form of food, due to having 100 food versus the 75 food for the Chicken.

Chickens have been eaten for thousands of years. While the Romans developed the first distinctive breed of chickens, ancient records show Asian jungle fowl were raised in China as early as 1400 BC. Since that time, chickens have become the most widespread and abundant domestic animal on the planet and one of the least expensive sources of protein. In addition to their meat, chickens provide eggs. In some modern African countries, 90 percent of households own scavenging chickens.
