The new challenges of Fortnite Winterfest require you to fly with the chickens. As the most elegant bird, the chicken is a noble choice to dodge bullets and snowball RPGs while gaining a little extra air. That…or it’s just a reliable way to get some extra XP.
However, the map in Chapter 3 of Fortnite is large, and the chicken is small. They also run away like cowards who are afraid of a cartoon cat wielding a katana. Therefore, we have found a reliable source of chickens and taught you how to release flying chickens in Fortnite so that you can complete this latest challenge.
Here is where to find chickens in Fortnite and how to fly them.
Fortnite chicken location
On the map above, you will find a location where you can lay eggs very reliably, and you can chase around to complete this challenge. In the southwest of Rocky Reels, you will find a gas station and another building at the crossroads.
Walk around the area, maybe on the side of the road, you might find at least a few chickens. Now is the tricky part.
How to fly with chickens in Fortnite
To fly with a chicken in Fortnite, you must become a chicken. In fact, no, you just have to grab it. Unfortunately, chickens are cunning devils, they run faster than you.
Therefore, the best way to capture a chicken and successfully capture it is to build a series of walls around the area to capture them. They will still try to escape, but as long as they move to one side or the other, they will be closed, and eventually they will run out of the area to avoid you.
Then, when you see the prompt appearing above the chicken, press the “F” key (or whatever button you use to pick/interact). If it is swinging and running around, it may only flash for one second.
Once you pick up the chicken, your character will put it on their head. Now all you have to do is run and jump to activate the flying ability of the chicken. This gives you a slight low-gravity jumping effect, provided by the chicken wings, which suddenly must support the weight of a sentient banana man.
To complete the challenge, you actually need to fly 200 meters with the chicken. Try to run to an area with a little altitude nearby, so you can fly for a longer time. The nearby rock formations are working very well. You will see challenge cards pop up regularly to let you know how much progress you have made.
That’s it! You have completed the challenge and earned some extra XP. Check out all the other information you need to know about Fortnite Winterfest or how to warm up with Cozy Lodge’s Christmas log.
