Stardew Valley: How to Get Blue Chickens

Blue Chickens are a rare sight in Stardew Valley, and they are difficult to unlock. This guide shows you how to add them to your farm.

Stardew Valley is a farming simulator where you can spend hours working on your farm, honing your craft, and slowly building it up from nearly nothing, adding a variety of crops and animals to your home. One of the more exotic creatures you can add are Blue Chickens, and these are different from the regular chickens you can acquire.

Although Blue Chickens are a little strange, they’re extremely useful, and they’re a helpful component to add to your farm if you’re looking to make a good amount of money. Finding them can be tricky, though. Here’s what you need to know about how to get Blue Chickens in Stardew Valley.

The blue chicken is available after the eight-heart event with the villager Shane, where you see his own personal chicken coop filled with blue chicken and his favorite white chicken, Charlie. If you struggle to increase your friendship with Shane, give him a beer as a gift or Pepper Poppers. He regularly spends the night in the Stardrop Saloon, where you can buy beer anyway. Walk a few steps to your right after buying it and give it to him. You’ll become fast friends while playing Stardew Valley.

Upon visiting Shane to see his blue chickens, this unlocks them for you, giving you a 25% chance of getting one anytime you buy a chicken from Marnie or hatch an egg in your incubator. Blue chickens can hatch from both white and brown eggs.

The odd thing about blue chickens is that they don’t do anything differently from standard chickens. They do not lay blue eggs, only white eggs, which is odd because blue eggs are found in nature (not laid by chickens, but still). It comes off as odd since void chickens lay different types of eggs which can also be turned into void mayonnaise. Also, like regular chickens, the value of their eggs will increase the higher friendship you have with that animal. If you want chickens to gain friendship with you faster, consider changing farming professions.

While blue chickens don’t give you any unique products, they provide some visual variety in your coop. I’ve also found that adding them to the farm is a much more interesting sight than only seeing the traditional chickens running around. It’s exciting to see a blue one marching around the pen, going about its day with the others, even if they continue to produce white and brown eggs as if they were normal chickens.
