Briar Hens are a chicken variant found exclusively in The Moss Blanket by nests accompanied by their chickadoo counterparts and occasionally a Roostro, but can also be found in crates in The Moss Blanket, and offered as a reward on the Range Exchange if The Moss Blanket has been unlocked.
When in the presence of a Roostro, Briar Hens will lay eggs which immediately hatch into Briar Chickadoos, which will grow up into either a Briar Hen or a Roostro. This process is more efficient in a coop, especially when upgraded. When laying an egg, it has a chance to become an Elder Hen.
Briar hens are a chicken variant born from the wild thickets of the Far, Far Range. They were first discovered long ago by an explorer who noted that they seemed to have a complex tribal structure, and a fascinating series of chicken customs. He even may have joined the briar tribe as an honorary chicken himself! His records end there however, and we know nothing else about him or his findings. Oh, but his name was Carl. We know that.
On the Ranch:
Briar hens in close proximity to roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce briar chickadoos. However, keeping too many hens or roostros in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to halt. Savvy ranchers with an understanding of the complex nature of chicken romance always keep their coops from exceeding 12 grown chickens.
Because they are often found together, this map also applies to Briar Chickadoos and Roostros.
Briar hens are based on Junglefowl.
