Chickens spawn at random across the map, but these are the locations we’ve managed to find them so far in Fortnite Chapter 3:

  • Southwest of Greasy Grove.
  • Near the gas station west of Logjam Lumberyard.
  • At the center of the map, where Tilted Towers is currently covered by snow.
  • Over the river north of Rocky Reels.
  • Near the gas station south of Rocky Reels.
  • West of the Daily Bugle.

Chickens are one of the easiest animals to find in the wild in Fortnite Chapter 3, as there are plenty of them located around the Island. Still, it helps to know where to look so you don’t waste time running around like a headless chicken.

How to fly with a chicken in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1

Fortnite Flying with a ChickenEpic Games
Flying with a chicken in Fortnite is great fun.

When you spot a chicken in the wild in Fortnite, your first job is to grab hold of it. They’ll run away and change directions to try and throw you off. If you’re fast enough, however, you’ll be able to interact with it.

With a chicken now held overhead, you’ll notice a unique effect: Jumps are now much higher and longer as the chicken helps launch you off the ground. Using this trick lets you cover more distance than usual.

To complete the Avian Ambush challenges, you’ll need to fly 20 meters in one single flight. To do this, we’d recommend finding a tall cliff edge or building a ramp high up, then launching yourself off the edge.

Fun fact: Chickens can also be used to open Vaults hidden around the map! Vaults usually require at least two people to access, but a chicken can be held to take the place of another person if you’re playing solo.

Expect to see chickens become a hot commodity as Fortnite Chapter 3 rumbles on and more challenges require you to find them to earn XP.
