Chickens are the mutated descendants of long-domesticated birds.

Background[edit | edit source]

Chickens were widely thought to be extinct especially in areas such as the Capital Wasteland, however some survived in a homemade underground bunker and subsequently lived on the surface alongside their owners at hilltop farm ruins after the war.[citation needed] In other less desolate environments such as Appalachia they survived in a more natural fashion and are even considerably more common.

These radchickens[1] have been exposed to high levels of radiation, leaving them atrophied and naked. They are slightly smaller than their pre-War ancestors, and pose no threat whatsoever.
