Scrooge McDuck Wikia

The Golden Chicken is a supernatural golden chicken from the 2017 Continuum.


Created by the Court of Monteplumage to trick the greedy Conquistadors who invaded the Aztec Empire, the Golden Chicken was an ordinary solid-gold statue of a chicken as long as it was contained inside its ceremonial enchanted cage. However, if, perchance, some greedy thief were to remove it from said cage, the Chicken would come alive and begin to grow to gigantic size, wreaking havoc in the process.

The Aztecs failed to properly prepare for their own creation, and the Chicken was their undoing. As the Aztec Empire crumbled around them, Monteplumage and his Court retreated to their lonely Temple in the jungle, where they kept the Chicken in its cage; they also brought a supply of magical shrinking cacao bins to their Temple to shrink the Chicken in case of an emergency.

Centuries laters, the Golden Chicken was found by the trio of adventurers formed by Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck and Della Duck; after briefly awakening it, the ducks were able to get the Chicken back under control, and brought it back with them to McDuck Manor (with the now-undead Court's blessings at that).
