    Battle chicken bug? ANOTHER BUG!!!!!

    I already have 2 battle chicken ( one cyano and one bright green). Then i know how the process works :)
    But now, for 2 times, i've found an egg yellow ( mature battle chicken). Both the two times when i click on the egg no chicken :(
    But if i have other simple chicken eggs , they go out from the eggs normally.
    There is some bug with the yellow egg?

    Edit
    A NEW BUG!!!!
    Today when i claim the chicken ( tamed) from the coop to feed them they disappear and go under the signpost!!!
    This happens to all my chickens, normal and battle. I have 9 chicken and 9 times i left the house to take the chicken lost.
    I'm very very borred.
    The coops are in the house. I can't make a door to close the space. Yesterday was all right, now all chickens out of house

    Hi, Ivory. I wonder if your experience is the same as mine. The last two or three battle eggs I clicked the battle chicken was visually present for perhaps a second, then gone! This was in my house in a closed room. I found one of them outside in the woods but it disappeared so fast I never saw it again. They seem to have become so 'vorpal' (in my experience, anyway) that they just disappear. I never hatch eggs now, just sell 'em and warn the buyer that this may happen when they attempt to hatch it. (I naturally warn the buyer BEFORE the sale.)

    Today another battle chicken, pink egg, has disappeared after an half of second.
    I think that it is a real bug. I write to customer service

    I believe it has been said in another post somewhere that when you hatch an egg in your home, the new chicken lizard or battle chicken will actually appear outside your house underneath your house sign.

    This happened to me just today as I hatched a regular chicken lizard and surprised me at first but then I remembered reading about this somewhere else in a post a few weeks ago.

    I'm quite certain that this has been recognized as a bug and is meant to be fixed but I would still suggest that you submit a bug report.

    In the mean time, one way you can work around this would be to find a quiet area with a fenced in area and hatch your egg there. At least this way, when your battle chicken goes vorpal, it won't be able to run very far.

    I hope this helps out until they fix the problem.

    Just like Muu Bin said
    If you go somewhere to hatch your battle chicken that is inclosed, like the Malas secret places it will not go very far, I have hatch all mine there and they disappear for a second but are not hard to find

    Finally somone has understood me :)
    Yes, i've reported it has a bug but it seems that the chickens yet disappear.
    But i'm a little angry because all sayed that it's normal.
    NO.
    Tlmes ago i hatched the eggs in my house and the chickens ( also my 2 battle chickens) was near me. I had the time to tamed them, also the battle chicken ( with the collar, obiouvsly).
    Then, now, things are changed.
    And it's a bug.

    Obiouvsly now i hatch the eggs in a closed place, like a shop in a city. It works. But it's not normal!

    According to the patch notes on the UO website, this was a bug which should have been fixed during the regular server maintenance overnight.

    Greetings!

    This evening we have released a new client for users to patch. Additionally we will be publishing additional server changes during schedule maintenance.

    Publish 63.1

    * Houses will no longer evict chickens when players claim them from coops.
    * Players stuck in body-changing forms (such as Animal Form) will be reverted to their original form on login.


    Since there has been an immediate downtime today to publish yet another "publish" just one day later (Publish 63.2), I can not test the "fix" to the bug where chickens/ chicken lizards were evicted from the house when claimed. We should be able to log back in to the game some time around 8pm EST.

    Tested on Napa... chicken lizards & normal cooped chickens are staying in the house once claimed. Seems fixed to me...

    If I had to guess, which I don't, I'm just sticking my oar in...
    They're being ejected from private houses, and not public?

    Yes, kiminakity.
    I don't dream the things i write :)
    But it was fixed in the last patch. The same days that i noticed it
    Read this
    * Houses will no longer evict chickens when players claim them from coops."
    It comes from publish 63.1

    This has yet again happened to an alliance member of mine tonight, he hatched a battle chicken in his home to have it auto eject and flee with vorpal speed into the woods to be lost.
    I belive this would make it at least the 3rd time this has been an issue.
     
  17. I lost a few chickens this way too. I now hatch mine in one of the enclosed pens in moonglow. I figured it traps vorpal bunnies it should trap vorpal chickens too. So far I have been able to catch all that I have hatched there.:thumbup1:

    Well, this morning ( now for me it's 10 a.m ) things are so.
    If you claim your chckens fot feed them they don't disappear ( it was a fixed bug) but there is still the old bug.
    If you hacth an egg of a normal chicken on your house the normal chicken disappears immediately and go out of your house ( under the signpost). If you hatch an egg of a battle chicken in your house the battle chicken disappears at all.

    If you hatch an egg in a private home the chicken will be ejected to underneath your signpost.

    It doesn't disappear it runs off at vorpal speed.

    The solution is to hatch your battle chickens in a public place (small rooms in inns are great) and then gate them home.
    Or set your house to public.

    It's not a bug it was an intentional change after SA launch and was in the patch notes. Repeat not a bug.
