    Hi, I am just wondering what the % might be on Battle chicken breeding to have one hatch.

    My story, that has me asking this. I play on Atlantic, in the beginning of December I decided to start breeding Battle Chickens. So I read up on breeding, set coops and incubators up, got three Chicken Lizard. One week later I start to get eggs, fourish days later, (yes lag, Atlantic, December, we all remember the middle of the month), I get my first Battle Chicken egg, it was green. To cool :) took it to a small room and hatched it, green little guy, it look so cute , it had 138 health(that's all I remember for stats). Feed it and stabled it.

    REVERT December You all remember.

    Since the revert back to a time where my chicken lizards were like 2 days from being bonded, I lost my green Battle chicken. Its OK its a game I will get another. Now its been while since the revert, I have had 14 Mature Chicken Lizard eggs, not I of them has been a Battle Chicken. I thought maybe they took the color from the eggs, like they did with the plants, black seed now shows dull pink in the reproduction window. So I hatched 4 and no they were Chicken Lizards, just as the Mature said.
    So as my thread title asks, what is the percentage of getting a battle chicken, is this normal to go 14 eggs from 3 chicken lizards?

    Thank you for your time in reading this :) I'm just curious

    Hi, I guess it pays to post sometimes :)
    This morning I got 1 more Mature Chicken Lizard egg so that makes 15 in a row, but I also got this :danceb: a light green Battle chicken, I tried to post the pic I took of it but it didn't work.

    I'm happy now :) Thanks for reading my thread

    I can tell you it goes in streaks. I have quite a few battle chickens. My last run was 50 regular chics until i got a black one. Its annoying, but then my next run of 12 eggs netted me 4 Battle chics so keep at it.

    In seem to remember the original data said that if you kept the egg fully 'watered' for the entire time in the incubator, there was a 10% chance of it becoming a coloured battle chicken egg, and if you accidentally let it dry out at any point in the process and then re-watered to catch up the chance dropped to 5% - but always remember it's UO, so the code doesn't always work quite as intended, and the RNG hates everyone as well ;)
