General Information

The default color of the Chocobo is Desert Yellow. Players can change the color of their Chocobo by feeding them snacks while the chocobo is in its Stable. Once a suitable combination of snacks have been fed, the chocobo's plume will change after 6 hours (Earth Time). The color of chocobo's feather will change depending on the snacks fed to it. Different snacks will alter the colors differently. The chocobo must be kept in the Stable for the minimum of 6 hours for the effect to take place.

Once a Chocobo is stabled, the player can feed a number of snacks, each one altering the RGB value of the Chocobos feathers. Once the first snack is fed, the player then has a window of six hours (earth time) to feed a sequence of snacks to the chocobo. After six hours, the sequence of snacks fed will be applied to the Chocobo and - if successful - will alter the color of the feathers.

The sequence of the snacks being fed during the six hours is vital to the change being successful. Each snack will have a different effect on each of the RGB values (see the table below). The player has to be careful not to exceed 255 or go below 0 in any of the three RGB values or the change will fail. Because you cannot physically see what difference the sequence you are feeding snacks has on the RGB value, it takes careful planning to make sure the sequence applied does not force an RGB value over 255 or under 0.

The Chocobo starts out with the default color of Desert Yellow (which has an RGB value of 216/180/87). If the player then feeds it a Xelphatol Apple, the RGB value will change (when applied after six hours) to 221/170/75. If the player then feeds (or 'stacks up') another 7 Xelaphatol Apples, this would make a total of 8 changes of +5/-5/-5 to the RGB value (or +40/-40/-40) when applied after the full six hours. This would change the RGB value to 256/135/40 - because the 'R' value is 1 point above the maximum of 255, this would fail and nothing would happen after six hours. Therefore players need to carefully choose which order of sequence they feed multiple snacks to their Chocobo during the six hours in order to achieve the desired color.


  • After six hours, the sequence is made and the color system 'snaps' the resulting RGB value to the nearest color in the color table, so it is not necessary to end the sequence of feeding on PRECISELY the RGB value you're trying to achieve.
  • If a player makes a mistake, they can simply fetch their Chocobo from the stable and it will wipe out the sequence of any snacks that have been fed during that period. They can then re-stable their Chocobo to restart a new six hour period.
  • If a Chocobo's colors have already been changed, the player can feed a Han Lemon snack to reset the color back to Desert Yellow.


Note that this is for your companion/mount chocobo. As of patch 2.51, You can only change Racing Chocobo's color through breeding.
