How To Change Your Chocobo Color In FFXIV

1. Pick Your Color Of Choice

Changing a Chocobo’s color in FFXIV requires feeding them a combination of different snacks in a specific order. There are a variety of Chocobo color calculators online to help you figure this out.

For example, if you want your Chocobo to be Colibri Pink you will need:

  • 10 Doman Plum
  • 12 Valfruit
  • 2 O’Ghomoro Berries

However, the snacks must be fed in a specific order. For example, the feeding order for the above-mentioned Colibri Pink is:

  • O’Ghomoro Berries
  • O’Ghomoro Berries
  • Doman Plum
  • Valfruit
  • Doman Plum

  • Doman Plum

2. Gather Snacks

After figuring out what Chocobo color you would like, the next step is to gather all of the necessary snacks for that color combination. You can farm the snacks yourself, or buy them from the game’s market board.

3. Stable And Tend To Your Chocobo

After picking your color and gathering the snacks, the next step is to put your Company Chocobo into the Chocobo Stable. After the Chocobo is in the stable, select the stable again and choose “Tend To My Chocobo”. After that, select “Feed”.

4. Feed Your Chocobo

As stated previously, the Chocobo’s color is determined by feeding them a combination of snacks in a certain order. Refer to your Chocobo color calculator for the order of snacks to achieve the color of your choice.

5. Wait!

After feeding the snacks to your Chocobo, it takes six hours (real-time, not game time) for the Chocobo’s feathers to turn into your color of choice.

Note: The Chocobo’s color will not change if it is taken out of the stable before the six hours is up. It is recommended that you start the color-changing process before you stop playing for the day. This will make sure that enough time passes for the color change to occur.
