Cockatrices are a mob in the Aether expansion mod. They resemble colorful Moas, and are highly dangerous due to the poisonous darts they fire from their mouths. They are capable of gliding.

Uses[edit | edit source]

Cockatrices lay chicken eggs and drop up to 3 feathers upon death. The eggs are due to the mythology based on cockatrices, which are said to hatch from a chicken egg that is incubated by a snake under the full moon. Considering that chickens have the same exact drops as the dangerous cockatrices, and an additional raw chicken, it is recommended to instead farm those.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Cockatrices will walk around a bit until they see the player, at which point they will aggressively fire poison darts. Cockatrice's will glow in the dark, on wings body tail and head at night.

Combat[edit | edit source]

The darts a cockatrice fires do minimal damage, but the real danger is the poison, which does a steady one damage every two seconds and causes the player to lose some control over their movement by giving them nausea, which can send them plummeting off of a cliff. Because of this, it is recommended to use ranged weapons or consume a bucket of remedy before engaging them in combat. It is also a bad idea to battle them near a cliff or island edge unless you have taken remedy beforehand.
