The item to call the chocobo is the Chocobo Whistle, with a recast of 5 minutes. The NPCs hint at a quest involving the leader of Vana'diel Chocobo Society. --Devious 8/21/06

Day 1

Earth time or vana'diel time? --Ayrlie 24 August 2006, 00:18 (CDT)

The days for chocobo raising is Earth time, 24 hours from when you traded the egg. Each 24 hours you get a report, and it tells you how many Earth days it has been. --Svak 12:29, 24 August 2006 (EDT)

Egg to chick

I was hoping only 3 days. but man how many days are we going to have a stupid egg! Ferine 23:51, 24 August 2006 (EDT)

Day three passed, no eggs hatched. I'm betting a week.--Svak 01:04, 25 August 2006 (EDT)

I thought SE had said 30-90 days. --Aelis 01:09, 25 August 2006 (EDT)

30 days is for the full life. The egg should hatch soon. friend of mine said his just hatched, but honestly, I don't trust him half as much as I can delete the numerous "prank" viruses he sent me. --Feba 17:36, 25 August 2006 (EDT)


am updating this on a daily basis as my chick grows. as well adding what options are added on each phase and what they do. if you find any thing i miss feel free to add. Ferine 19:12, 25 August 2006 (EDT)


It seems like there are a lot of things to feed a Chocobo. (At least the NPC in the stables makes it sound like there is a lot.) Should there be a section for the different feeds and the effects of each? --Rokaa 10:58, 26 August 2006 (EDT)

I agree a page with all the feed will be usefull. As well as all efects and what the total increase/decrease each food gives for each. Ferine 01:42, 28 August 2006 (EDT)

Have moved the additions of feed to their own seperate page. Ferine 13:44, 28 August 2006 (EDT)

Care plans?

Does anyone know or have any information on wether or not setting all four plas to something different matters?--Aelis 01:39, 27 August 2006 (EDT)

Currently the only thing setting all 4 plans would do is allow you to go away for a couple days and not worry about what your chocobo is having done to it. you can change them on a day to day basis if you want or you can set up a system and then just walk away. Ferine 01:42, 28 August 2006 (EDT)

Making friends

When your chocobo makes friends with the trainer's chocobo you might meet them again for a second time, and the third time you get a chocobo story key item. There are 5 stories in the .dats, each corresponding to 1 of the 5 stables (including Al Zahbi I believe) I think. --Jopasopa 09:16, 27 August 2006 (EDT)

My chocobo meet another on it's first walk, and nothing since then. Sorry, but this is random.--Feba 13:28, 27 August 2006 (EDT)

Have you personaly had this effect happen or is this what you have heard?. if you know this for a fact then add it to the Go on a walk page Ferine 01:43, 28 August 2006 (EDT)

After approx. 4-5 walks with my choco, we bumped into the San d'Orian Trainer and his Chocobo, "Air." I'm not sure what the effect of this was, there was no new option in the care menu or care plans (not that I saw anyway). I'm guessing events may happen sporadically, or that friendship will be more involved in the adolescent phase. --Tadekatsu 06:51, 28 August 2006 (EDT)

My chocobo has yet to have that event while going on a short walk, and I've done it 3-4 times each day depending on remaining energy. Also, I did get the event that it was crying at night and such. When I obtained the white handkerchief, I just zoned out, then came back to the chocobo npc, and it was done. I didn't have to go through any waiting period.--Anjiru 21:21, 28 August 2006 (EDT)
