Chickens are smaller than a block. They have a white body, yellow legs and beak and a red wattle.
Chickens wander around and if they fall of a cliff, they flap their wings and fly down. Chickens follow the player if you are holding wheat seeds. CHickens lay an egg every 7 minutes.
Right-clicking two chickens with wheat seeds will breed them.
Throwing an egg has a 1/8 chance to spawn a chicken.
