Hostility Level (Passive)
A chicken is a passive mob. The term mob is short for mobile and is used to refer to all living, moving creatures in the game such as cows, creepers, and chickens. Because a chicken is a passive mob, it will never attack you in the game (Creative or Survival mode).
In Minecraft, a chicken has 2 hearts for health. This gives a chicken 4 health points (because 1 heart = 2 health points). To kill a chicken, you need to inflict 4 points of damage to the chicken.
Where to Find Chickens
In Minecraft, chickens are found in most Overworld biomes on land. If you are having trouble finding a chicken, you can summon a chicken using a cheat or you can use a spawn egg.
A chicken does not carry a weapon.
You are safe to walk near a chicken and it will not attack or cause you any damage. And if you attack a chicken, it will just try to run away. It will not attack you back.
When you kill a chicken in Minecraft, it will drop raw chicken and if you are very lucky, a feather.
Make sure you pick up any dropped items before they disappear. They are useful and should be kept in your inventory to be used later.
As you play the game, you will gain experience. The most common way to gain experience is by killing mobs. When a mob is killed you will see tiny green and yellow balls appear and move towards you.
These orbs represent experience points. When you kill a chicken, you will gain 1-3 experience points.
