This pet does have an animation. It's rockets light up and it hovers every few seconds.

It's a great battle pet.  It has 2 abilities that mitigate damage, so when either or both are up it's very resilient.  It also is good against both Beasts and Aquatic pets. Also the profile is completely unique from any other mechanical or chicken, while still retaining the flavor of both.  It's breed is always SS so it hits first most of the time.  It also is my favorite pet animation.  I got it in a WOWTCG trading card pack prior to pet battles.

I love this battle-pet. It is my first got-to when I am against a beast that will burrow. It is Ninja Fast, so wait for them to burrow, then BAM fly into the air and swoop down on them.

But, it is a good battle pet?

Also known as 'Robotic Homing Chicken'. I've seen it on eBay under both names.

Just picked up a caged one for 10k on my server from a random seller in trade. Bargain if you ask me.


I've sold dozens of far more common pets for about 5k each, and a couple for MORE than 10k. So all and all I think it was a worthwhile buy. (Not that I plan on selling the little guy, he's MINE now, lol)...



I <3 Pet Caging. Giving me way more opportunities at little gems like this.

I just bought this on eBay for $75.00 buy out. Totally worth every penny. I did notice that this was a pet that was starting an "upswing" in price. Its right in the mid-range where people find it affordable but not too pricey. I love him!

The Rocket Chicken is the first step in a elaborate world domination plot orchestrated by a group of gnomes and goblins that have put aside their differences and decided to combine their mechanical expertise. The Rocket Chicken itself isn't that frightening, sure, but when they reveal the Rocket Bear, oh-ho-ho! The world will tremble!

It's a little known fact that when ever the Rocket chicken explodes on your party or raid, the "white stuff" that expands and falls is actually purified win. My guild out right demands this pet be out during raids and new fights :)

It's good luck if Rocket Chicken explodes on a boss pull!

This is the pet I get the most whispers about. People are very curious when he explodes and the feathers fly. I had him out a lot when farming for the raptors. Hours of amusement for all my pet-loving counter-parts. Mine seems to like exploding more often than he used to as well.

Players who you group with will ask "What was that?" when he explodes. I've had this since that card expansion comes out and I still get questions about it all the time. He will idle around pecking at the ground then lift off every few seconds.

When the Burning Legion invaded Outland, Landro Longshot contributed this design to the war effort. Both the Alliance and Horde passed on production.
