I was so excited to get this pet. Took me forever. Finnally used You Tube to find out how to get him.

I know there are probably arguments to be made for all but in general which breed is best for this pet? Opinions please and thanks

I love this chicken. It was a gift my bf bought for me way back in 2005. Same with the 2 parrots from Booty Bay. He got to certain zones sooner than I did :)

I never had more than one of the parrots so I know they are the original ones, but later I bought the Ancona on many alts so the "original" got lost in the flock :)

The Chicken has well rounded stats and useful abilities. But with only Squawk as means of defense don't expect it to avoid stuff or be very durable. Go for as much power as you can since no abilities get any extra benefits for going first.

 

The Eggs can really hurt undead. And if you pair it with call lightning or a damage booster like wild magic or black claw it can really shine.

As with the Yellow Moth, this pet, though purchaseable, offers a variety of breeds (4 to be exact). Considering everything, especially that flying pets enjoy a nice speed boost when over 50% health, it seems to me that the best breed for this guy would be the Breed 20 variety. Buy yourself a few of them and keep checking until you find one that features 150 health, 11 power and 10 speed at level 1 uncommon; this will translate to 1465 health, 289 power and 273 speed at 25 rare.

This pet DOES occasionally show up as a secondary, but is NOT capturable. It will always be of Uncommon quality in these battles, as well.

 

The only way to actually acquire one for yourself is to buy it.

It's a chicken.  A greyish chicken.

 

 

Not much more to be said than that.

This pet does indeed show up as a secondary to the Scorpid. Possibly from other pets too, but I haven't seen it. Also, they all appear to be uncommon quality as I have also yet to see poor, common or rare.

 

But never fear, Blizz is here! They promise in patch 5.1 for battle pets to be upgradeable in some fashion. Yayyy!! No more wasting hours on a rare search when you already have an uncommon.

It shows up as a secondary combatant in Thousand Needles, but it was not capturable for me.  I think you still have to buy it.

I love the chicken pets! Even if this one is more common, it's still awesome and I actually think he may be cuter than the mechanical chicken which I quested so hard for XD
