"Flown the Coop" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


This Quest begins once Link decides to help Cado locate his precious missing Cuccos and return them to him. Cado notes that there are 10 Cuccos altogether and hopes that Link can find them.[2] Any time Link returns to Cado without all of the Cuccos in their pen, Cado will remind him of how many he needs and tells him how many have returned.[3] He stresses over the thought of any of his Cuccos being gone and begs Link to do his best in finding them.[4]

All of the Cuccos can be found in Kakariko Village, with 3 of them remaining in the pen where they belong. One has flown up onto the hill with the Ta'loh Naeg Shrine, just above Cado's home. Another is standing beside Olkin and Mellie's home. One Cucco has roosted on the roof of Enchanted, across the road from Cado's house. Yet another is perched on the roof of a wooden structure in front of Lasli's house. The eighth is trotting about the Campfire in front of the Village's Goddess Statue. Number nine is situated in another of these structures next to Steen's Swift Carrot patch. Finally, the last Cucco is pecking around in Mellie's Plum Garden. This last Cucco is tricky to obtain as Mellie will immediately scold anyone for trespassing in her Garden.[5] It can only be grabbed when she goes home for the day.

Once all of the Cuccos are accounted for, Cado will be surprised and overjoyed with Link's success.[6] The man thanks Link repeatedly for his work and rewards him with a Purple Rupee, valued at 50 Rupees, ending the Quest.[7] Cado declares that he is ready to face the world again, although he wishes his wife would return as well.[8]
