Battle For Azeroth
Patch 8.0.1 | Posted: August 13, 2018
Francois can be found wandering around at the Norwington Estate in northwestern Tiragarde Sound. He is located next to a wagon near the mansion (follow the road up the hill).

Interacting with this NPC will bring up a dialogue. Players that have 1 million gold or more in their inventory will see an extra dialogue option pop up, allowing them to obtain Francois as a battle pet. The gold is not consumed; players keep their gold.

I had 1m+ in my bag lent to me by a guild member, but the bird did not do more than peck at my feet. am I missing something?

 

Update, ok I found that what was wrong was an addon (not sure what one) was conflicting with his ability to talk to me, once I turned off all my addons I was able to get him to talk and got him on 3 alts so now have the max :)

Francois is a beautiful silkie chicken (although he looks more like a silkie hen) and such a great depiction of the breed and I love the idea of a hatched faberge egg. It was a good detail that they included the dark beak although silkies are an odd chicken breed having an extra toe (they have five toes which was not depicted here) and it can make it easier to tell if a cross bred chicken has some silkie lineage by if they have an extra toe

It's fixed for me, leveling him on my Alliance toon on US-Proudmoore on 11/12/18! He's such a fluffy little guy!

Horde can also get this pet so it is not Alliance only.

SWEET! As of today, he's fixed, fully usable on the Alliance side (he was previously unsummonable/unslotable).

Francois, a pompous member of the bockgeoisie, whose wealth and influence was born from the exploitation and labor of the peckletariat.
