I have a very unhappy and starving chicken in the coop that wont come out.

I have the same issue, it happened 10 minutes into the game and they keep telling me they want to leave; not even cheats or the call chicken option helps, all hens are stuck ):

@JooxdeeI was having this same issue. To fix it I went into build/buy mode and moved the coop (I had to use the moveobjects cheat but that may be my lot and not a necessity). It seems my chicken was stuck under/behind the coop.

*Edit* I also had to use the resetobject cheat on the chicken as she was still frozen despite being free

Not an ideal solution but at least we can stop our chickens from starving!

I have the same problem. Looks like there is an error in game. Maby thay will fix it. It happened to me few times. Also, sometimes the chicken its disappears when i trying to interact with him.

If it's helpful, I've been able to click the chickens and select place in inventory. (When they're nesting this is easy - if they're standing inside the coop I have to mess around with the camera angles to make them clickable.) Then I just place them back in the world so they can eat.

I am still having this problem and then when I move the coop the chickens are still glitched and I have to go to manage worlds and come back almost every time I play. 🤬

@rockmissjess there's another issue with the chicken coop on console: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-PS-XB-CoL-Cursor-disappears-after-interacting-with-Chicke...
