Fly with a chicken Fortnite: Where to find chickens in Fortnite Chapter 3

The Fortnite Avian Ambush quests ask you to fly (and do a bunch of other things) with a chicken. As the most graceful of birds, the chicken is a great choice for getting some air while jumping or just looking for some prey. However, the Fortnite Chapter 3 map is huge and the chickens are small. They also run away like cowards who are afraid of cartoon cats with katanas. So, we tried to find a reliable source of chickens, and also laid out each Bird Ambush quest for your convenience.

Here’s where to find chickens in Fortnite and how to fly with a chicken.

Where to find chickens in Fortnite

On the map above, you’ll find a location that spawns chickens fairly reliably, which you can chase down to complete this challenge. Southwest of Rocky Reels, you’ll find a gas station and another building at the crossroads.

Walk around the area, perhaps along the way, and you’ll probably find at least a couple of chickens. Now here’s the tricky part.

To fly with a chicken in Fortnite

you have to become a chicken. Not really, you just need to catch it. Unfortunately, chickens are cunning devils that can run faster than you. So the best way to catch a chicken and successfully grab it is to build a series of walls around the area to trap it. They will still try to escape, but cover them every time they move one way or the other, and eventually, they won’t have enough room to run away from you.

Then press the “F” key (or whatever button you use to pick up/interact) when you see the hint appear above the chicken. He may only flare up for a second if he moves and runs.

Once you pick up the chicken, your character will place it over their head. Now all you have to do is run and jump to activate the chicken’s flying abilities. This gives you a little low-gravity jumping effect, courtesy of tiny chicken wings that suddenly have to support the weight of a sentient banana man.
