Here is the mod documentation I submitted to Modjam:
Chickens have a chance to drop chicken bones. Start by killing some chickens.
While killing chickens you may discover a feature not mentioned in this README.
You can then make a chicken staff (see NEI for recipe).
Left click a chicken with a chicken staff and it will drop as an item.
The chicken item can be crafted into a chicken bone (which is more efficient than
killing them, and safer!) or smelted into a chicken ingot, or used in some other
You can use chicken ingots and chicken bones to make a chickaxe.
This chicken-flavoured pickaxe mines low-level ores quickly. However, it will not
be able to mine gold or diamond.
You may find chicken ore underground. This is a source of chickens, if you are
running low on chickens. It can also be crafted. For demonstration/testing purposes,
I suggest you spawn some, and then mine it in survival (using either a chickaxe
or a pickaxe).
Chicken ore cannot be directly smelted into chicken ingots.
Chicken ingots can, of course, be uncrafted into chicken nuggets - the same as
gold in vanilla. Chicken nuggets can be eaten for 0.5 food bars and no saturation.
Chicken ingots can also be crafted into chicken blocks, which can be crafted into
chicken block blocks. These act like noteblocks that play chicken sounds, and are
also used as crafting ingredients.
Chicken wings can be crafted (see NEI again). Chicken wings are like
Swords of the Zephyr from Thaumcraft 2. Point and right click to zoom forwards.
Point and left click to zoom backwards.
Known bug: if you right click on a block with a right click action (like chests),
you might go forwards instead of backwards. Blame vanilla.
Chicken beaks can be crafted (NEI). If your food drops below 9 bars, and you have a
chicken beak and chicken nuggets in your inventory, you will automatically eat a
chicken nugget. This does not work on other food - only chicken nuggets.
Combined with the chicken chest and some automation, you may never need to eat manually
Elec-chick staffs can be crafted (NEI). Right click to shoot lightning. 4 uses.
Chick'N'T can be crafted (NEI). It's like TNT, except it spawns chickens.
Known bug: it spawns some "fake" client-side chickens that won't move and disappear when you log out, as well as the real chickens.
Egg bombs are sometimes laid by chickens instead of normal eggs. These will explode
if picked up or thrown. To collect them, use hoppers or other automation.
Wireless Redstone can be crafted (NEI). It's like redstone, but completely useless.
Try right-clicking with it.
Chicken chests can be crafted (NEI). They are chests that access the inventory of
whoever placed them, if that person is online.
For demonstration/testing purposes, I recommend crafting this instead of spawning it.
Known bug: Using your own chicken chest causes minor inventory sync issues.
This is fixed by reopening the chest or picking up a desynced stack.
You've probably seen this kind of bug before with some other mod. The chicken chest does *not* duplicate items.
Try striking a chicken with lightning (e.g. from an elec-chick staff).
Then kill the resulting chicken with a sword or bow.
Then do it again, but this time kill it with lava.
