Rad chickens are creatures found on the Island in the Fallout 4 add-on Far Harbor and in Appalachia in Fallout 76.



Centuries of exposure to the Island's high radiation levels have taken their toll on the local chicken population. The bird's wings, as well as their plumage, have atrophied almost to the point of nonexistent; leaving them naked and unable to fly. Unlike many other animal species that live in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, rad chickens have not grown to monstrous sizes. In fact, they actually appear to be slightly smaller than their pre-War ancestors. Apart from these differences, rad chickens retain most of their original appearance.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Rad chickens are completely docile and pose no threat whatsoever. They also are fairly cowardly and will often flee as soon as combat breaks out in their vicinity. The small birds can therefore be ignored in any given situation unless one is out to hunt them for their meat. All of them crow multiple times at sunrise.
