The Ancona Chicken item summons and dismisses an Ancona Chicken, a chicken small pet that follows you around, meaning it is a non-combat pet and will not aid you in battle.
Ancona Chicken is sold by Magus Tirth at the Mirage Raceway in Thousand Needles for 1.
With the exception of the hard-to-get Westfall Chicken and the Mechanical Chicken, this is the only chicken-type pet available to members of the Horde.
- Patch 1.4.0 (2005-05-05): Ancona creature name changed to Ancona Chicken.

Magus Tirth goes mad after the Cataclysm and blames his apprentice, "Plucky" Johnson, constantly attacking him. After killing Tirth the player can talk to Johnson to buy some pet chickens.
