Robot Hen Egg
Robot Chickens are the only robotic farm animals in Starbound. There are two subtypes of robot chickens: "hostile" robot chickens and robot hens.
"Hostile" robot chickens are found near Glitch Villages. They resemble chickens in both size and movement, but they have 2 base health and deal 99,999 base damage. In a previous version, "hostile" robot chickens were unkillable except by Lava; however, as of version 1.1.1, they are now only immune to being Poisoned, and killing one of these creatures even awards the "Too Heavy to Kick" Steam achievement. Oddly enough, "hostile" robot chickens can be captured (?) without needing to weaken them first.
Robot hens can only be obtained from Robot Hen Eggs purchased from Terramart for 1,000 Pixels each. These objects, once placed, will hatch robot chicks which then grow up into robot hens. Once fully grown, they start off grey, but will eventually turn bronze. Interacting with a bronze robot hen produces an AA Battery and turns the robot hen grey again. Robot hens cannot be captured, but they can be relocated.
