The Ugly Little Bird is a Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II. A sickly looking chicken wants you to kill it. Will you do so?

- Convince it that it is a phoenix (optional).
- Burn it with fire or kill it.
The Ugly Little Bird Walkthrough
North of Driftwood, at co-ordinates X:353 Y:255,, there is a sickly-looking chicken at a farm called Ferno. Speak to it with the pet pal talent for 5400XP. You can persuade it to let you kill him, or if you have both the scholar tag (like Sebille and The Red Prince) and the pet pal talent, however, you can convince it that it's actually a phoenix and that by burning it alive, you can reawaken the chicken's real memories and let him rise from the ashes as a real phoenix.
Regardless of your choice, simply cast some fire spells on it, and it will turn into a phoenix egg. You can then decide to keep it or eat it. If you eat it, you will learn the skill "Phoenix Dive". Either way, this easy quest is complete. Note that you can't choose to eat the egg later on once you picked it up.
- 5400XP for finding to Ferno.
- 13450XP for taking/eating the egg.
Tips & Tricks:
- If you did not eat nor sell the phoenix egg, you will be able to see the hatched Phoenix Ferno on Lady Vengeance after you completed the game. This can happen with any ending.
I used pheonix dive to burn it. Everyone but ifan wants you to eat it. I decided to keep it.
10775 xp for keeping the egg with me and not eating it.
It's a true joy to see the little fiery chick on the deck post completion
Also kinda wish we cd hatch it early and make him a badass companion tho
new post: definitive edition. i shot him with a regular arrow to 'put him out of his misery,' but i guess the fire enchantment on my bow was enough to trigger the phoenix egg. i learned phoenix dive already, so i guess i'll hang on to it. sebille was with me, but the suspicion of it being a phoenix was not present in the dialogue options. maybe just having a party member with the tag nearby activates it, or maybe it always does that, but you don't know to try fire unless you have the scholar there to tell you.
I received the phoenix egg after speaking to Ferno with Ifan (Pet Talent, but no Scholar tag), and then shooting it with a fire arrow. 10,775xp (plus 5400xp for finding Ferno and initiating quest).
The Red Prince got me crackin. Talked to the chicken, suggested to give it some fire, used phoenix blaze near it and killed it. This lizard just said "I-- is it dead?" LMAO
Can i ask, if it's a chicken why does it have a male voice ? :D and you guys use HIM for it.
I may or may not have just killed a phoenix with fire... could it be that Spontaneous Combustion with enough damage just uhhh insta kills the bird? I also now can't loot him either, the Quest closed saying that it died, so yeah... I have 31 int and 8 in pyrokinetic
Ferno ? Short Inferno ? :)
Do not use your recipe to make meals... I accidently made a meal out of this special egg and I lost the ending *****
Got 10775 xp after keeping the egg for myself in def. edition.
They're hard to see because they're green, but there are a couple of dead chickens around around him you can loot chicken claw & bird leg from.
Yeah the guide is inaccurate. I picked up the egg and stored it. I did not get "Phoenix Dive" skill on Definitive Edition
Don't use cursed fire. It just died without spawning the egg, for me at least.
it just teaches u the skill, not give it for u for free use, so if u dont have a char with 2 warfare it would be useless to eat.
what comes after the chicken or the egg? :]
If you keep the egg in your inventory the whole game and fully beat the game. No matter what ending the egg will hatch on the very final boat scene and it will be a pheonix hatchling named ferno
I received 40350xp for killing the chicken with a fire arrow
Let me get this straight: The egg will never ever hatch?
You get the exp when the egg appears, not for eating/taking it.
His name is FeRno not fermo, just fyi.
Holding the egg grants the status effect 'Warm' to whichever character is carrying it
NVM must've been an earlier patch. No warm status. Just a 2500g egg.
Holding onto it grants the warm status for whoever is carrying it. Nice for going into fight where cold damage is being thrown around, I guess.
I accidentally hit Ferno with a sword with some fire damage and I got the phoenix egg as well
I think the bird's name might be Ferno, as in "inferno".
I did not get any phoenix egg from burning it.
There is also a Landscape painting you can pick up early on that has the description "Phoenix Egg." I have no idea how this connects nor do I, unfortunately, remember exactly where I picked it up.
I cannot eat it. I can eat the phoenix heart, but not the phoenix egg. The menu doesnt have this option for the egg.
Ffs, one more of those "If you have tag A and talent B, the quest can be solved in a decent way" - do i have to read the wiki on every fckn quest or what?!
i put it on top of a glowing idol of rebirth and it lit on fire for a bit then nothing and if i put it on to it agin it dosnt do anything
yeah i only got 13.5k xp for picking up or eating the egg. so the 40k is grossly inaccurate. the 5k for talking to him is right.
The coordinate is wrong. It's X:353, Y: 255.
For clarity, you do not need to convince it for it to turn into a Phoenix Egg, simply immolating the sod will do.
Eating it teaches you Phoenix Dive, but what does keeping it do? Is it just valuable?
