Chompy birds can only be killed when you have finished the Big Chompy Bird Hunting quest and only if you are using the ogre composite bow or ogre bow with brutal arrows or ogre arrows. Bloated toads must be used as bait to catch them. When you kill a chompy bird, you will get a message which says: You scratch a notch on your bow for the chompy bird kill. After 30 kills, the player can wear chompy hats. When a chompy dies, it will give you a corpse, which you can pluck to gain feathers. Doing this will also place a raw chompy and some bones on the ground. Raw chompy can be cooked on a spitroast to give cooked chompy. Notably, they are completely immune to abilities, including Momentum, as they are "too crafty".

Pluck its feathers, and it's ready to be cooked.

Required for completingEdit

Killing 30 chompy birds is a requirement for the following:

Killing 4000 chompy birds is a requirement for the following:


  • The chompy bird's name comes from the Nicaraguan word for Turkey, "Chompipe", pronounced "chom-pea-pay".
  • It previously could not be Monster Examined. However, it is now possible, and states that this monster has a max hit of 8.
  • When you kill it, it will still be a yellow dot on the minimap until you pluck it.
  • The chompy bird's appearance is near to that of the extinct dodo.
  • Upon reaching 4000 kills, a player will have earned 248,800 ranged xp which, coupled with the 30,000 one time xp bonus for reaching 4000 kills, yields 278,800 ranged xp and 82,000 constitution xp for completing the chompy bird hunting. The 30,000 bonus CAN be increased by bonus experience.
