The inhabitants of the village and the Kijuju region kept chickens as a source of protein. The eggs laid by these birds could also be used as a means of health. In Resident Evil 5 they will attack you while being chased, dealing extremely minimal damage. They count as "enemies" in both Story Mode and The Mercenaries mini game. They give 2000 points if killed in the Mercenaries. Chickens make an appearance in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, where if killed they drop a green herb. Chickens also appear in Resident Evil 6 in an outdoor market in Lanshiang where some are caged in crates and others are roaming free, killing them won't yield any item.
