There are some changes made to Hens in FU. See the Chicken page on Starbounder for info from the vanilla game. They are omnivores and need to be fed from a trough in order to produce.

Hen eggs take 400s to hatch in the Incubator or 9000s without. A primed egg takes 200s to hatch in the Incubator. A regular egg (the kind you harvest from the chickens and eat or cook with) has a 50% chance to hatch into a hen baby in 400s in the Incubator.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

It can occur that the Hen won't mature properly and will stay a baby regardless of the above mentioned evolvetime. To counter this bug you have to give yourself admin rights with the /admin command and use the command /timewarp <seconds> and put in the specific evolvetime.
