The Gold Chicken Egg has a very low chance to be laid by any of the chicken you’ll encounter in the game. You might get lucky with finding one in the early village sections, but there’s also a guaranteed Gold Chicken Egg location a little while later when you get access to the lake.

If you don’t already have one, the best place to get a Gold Chicken Egg in Resident Evil 4 is on a small berth on the east side of the lake. Once you have the boat and have fought Del Lago, drive over to the map position marked above. You’ll find a small enclosure packed with chickens and cages. Check the floor here carefully, as you’re guaranteed to find a Gold Chicken Egg in the back area.

While you’re on this land chunk, make sure to grab the treasure from the north side as well. We don’t recommend killing the chickens, as they will continue to drop eggs for you to collect. You might even get lucky enough to get a second golden egg.

Once you have the Gold Chicken Egg, do not eat or throw it. Return to the merchant and sell the Gold Chicken Egg to him. You’ll gain a bunch of money and earn three spinels for your trouble when you move back to the main merchant menu.

Spinels can then be traded for rare goods including new weapons, scopes, and laser sights, which makes completing easy requests like Egg Hunt well worth the time.
