- "Cuccos are always losing and regrowing feathers. Weirdos."
- — In-game description
Its in-game description reveals that Cuccos lose and regrow their feathers continuously, indicating that Cucco go through a process of moulting like real world chickens. This may also be a reference to Cuccos shedding feathers when they flap their wings when Link picks them up in various titles.
Cucco Feathers often appear as part of a Cuccos animation in various The Legend of Zelda series titles, however they are considered an item for the first time in Tri Force Heroes.
Though Cucco Feathers do not appear as an item, they are referenced in Breath of the Wild. It is revealed by certain Innkeepers such as Kachoo and Chessica that soft and fluffy beds are crafted using Cucco Feathers in order to leave sleepers full of energy when they wake. Sleeping on one of these beds gives Link a single extra yellow heart in addition to fully restoring his Heart Containers.
