Chickens are harmless creatures which can be found in doodads.
They have 20HP.
Holding a chicken will temporarily grant the player the featherfall status effect.
Bringing a living chicken into the intermission and tossing it into the bonfire will reward the player with a roasted chicken which heals 10HP and gives temporary Strength and Speed buffs when eaten.
If the chicken is dead, the player will get a rotten chicken instead which poisons the player when eaten.
