Chickens are the mutated descendants of long-domesticated birds that lived before Great War.


Some chickens survived the Great War sheltering in bunkers.[1] In Appalachia, they have survived in a more natural fashion and are considerably more common. Less mutated than other creatures in the area, they are utilized for food.[2]

Radchicken variants[3] have been exposed to high levels of radiation, leaving them atrophied and naked. They are slightly smaller than their pre-War ancestors, and likewise pose no threat.

Pretty sure I saw some garlic and paprika in the supply room somewhere. I can't do another night of that pink shit again."
