Painted Chickadoos can be produced domestically in a coop by a Painted Hen if it is in the presence of a Roostro, and will itself grow up into a Painted Hen or - more rarely - a Roostro. Until it grows up, Slimes will not eat it.
Painted chickadoos are baby chickens that will eventually grow into a painted hen or more rarely, a roostro.
Chickadoos of all varieties will never be eaten by slimes. Some believe this is because slimes are too kind-hearted to do such a thing. Others believe it's because chickadoos don't yet have enough meat on their bones.
