Azeroth Pet Quest Rewards
To get the Westfall Chicken pet, players must complete one of my all-time favorite quests, CLUCK! To get the quest, you must target a chicken (any chicken in the game will do, but it’s easiest if you find one close to either Farmer Saldean in Westfall for Alliance characters or William Saldean in Brill for members of the Horde) and repeatedly do a /chicken emote until the chicken’s nameplate turns green and the message “Chicken looks up at you quizzically. Maybe you should inspect it?" appears in your chat log.
You’ll receive the quest, and must give the chicken some Special Chicken Feed to complete it. Once you’ve provided the chicken feed, your chicken will lay an egg which you can then loot to obtain your very own Westfall Chicken.
The Sprite Darter Hatchling is the reward for the alliance-only quest Becoming a Parent in the Hinterlands. Horde players can get the hatchling as a rare drop from a Sprite Darter in Feralas. Alliance members can only get the pet through the quest, it only drops for Horde.
There are two WoW companion pets available through quests that start in the Burning Steppes and take you into Lower Black Rock Spire, so it’s best to do them at the same time. Both the En-Ay-Es-Tee-Why and Kibler’s Exotic Pets quests can be obtained from a goblin named Kibler who hangs out in a cave due north of the Ruins of Thuarassian in the Burning Steppes.
Both quests require you to venture into LBRS, but level 80 players (or just about anyone 75+) should be able to solo both no problem. You’ll need to collect 15 spider eggs for the Smolderweb Hatchling and use the cage Kibler gives you on a worg pup to get your Worg Pup pet. Turn both quests back into Kibler to get your pet rewards.
The final classic WoW pet available as a quest reward requires a bit more effort than the others, which is why I’ve saved it for last. To earn the Mechanical Chicken pet, you’ll have to complete three separate escort quests in different locations throughout Azeroth. In Feralas, you’ll have to complete the Rescue OOX-22/FE! quest. You’ll also need to complete the Rescue OOX-09/HL! quest in The Hinterlands and the Rescue OOX-17/TN! quest in Tanaris.
Each of these three quests requires you to escort a prototype mechanical chicken to safety, facing ambushes of 45-ish level mobs along the way. Once you’ve completed all three quests, turn them in to Oglethorpe Ognoticus in Booty Bay to receive the An OOX of Your Own quest. Turn in back in to Oglethorpe and you’ll receive your mechanical chicken.
