The Henhouse,(LANS)[1] also known as the Cucco Shack,(MM | TMC)[2][3] is a recurring location in The Legend of Zelda series.[note 1]

Features and Overview

Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, the Henhouse is located in the Tal Tal Mountain Range. It is home to various Cuccos, including the Flying Rooster, and the Henhouse Keeper.

Majora's Mask

Situated inside the Romani Ranch, the Cucco Shack is home to Grog and is open from 6 AM to 8 PM.[5] The Cucco Shack has ten little Cucco chicks in it, as well as decorative Cucco paintings on the walls. There are small wall-portions in the Cucco yard, which seem to serve no beneficial purpose whatsoever. Grog's last wish before the Moon falls is to see the Cucco chicks turn into roosters, but regrets that there will be no time to see them grow up.[6] Link can help him fulfill his wish by parading around the Shack with the Bremen Mask on and getting the Cucco chicks to follow him. Once all ten of them follow Link, they will immediately begin to transform into full-grown Cuccos. Link in turn receives the Bunny Hood from Grog in thanks for helping him out.[7]

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, the Anju's Henhouse is located in Hyrule Town, which is home to Anju. Inside, various Cuccos and chicks can be found. One of the Cuccos can fuse Kinstones with Link.
