Final Fantasy 14: How To Change The Color Of Your Chocobo

Final Fantasy 14 allows players to have their very own Chocobo mount once they hit level 20, at which point they can complete the “My Little Chocobo” sidequest given by one of the officers in their home city-state. Additionally, at level 30, players can then summon their Chocobo into battle to help them vanquish enemies by completing the level 30 sidequest “My Feisty Little Chocobo”, given by Docette in the South Shroud at (X:17, Y:28).

As with most things, players love to customize their Chocobos to really make them their own. As well as being able to equip barding to your Chocobo to give it a new look, players can also change the color of their Chocobo by feeding it different foods. If you’re looking to give your Chocobo a nice new shade, we’ve got it all covered for you just below!

How to Change Your Chocobo’s Color

In order to change your Chocobo’s color, you’ll need to stable it at your house, either a personal one or a Free Company one. Stables can be bought from the Housing Merchants for 125,000 Gil, and they are an outdoor item so you’ll need enough space for one in your garden area. The NPCs who sell these can be found at any of the following locations:

  • Mist (X10.8, Y11.5)
  • The Lavender Beds (X11.7, Y8.3)
  • The Goblet (X11.4, Y9.4)

Once your Chocobo is safely stabled, you will be able to feed it snacks by choosing the “Tend to My Chocobo” option. As soon as you have fed it its first snack, you only have a window of six hours to complete feeding it snacks to get your desired color. After the six hours has passed, and provided the snacks have met the color change requirement, the plumage of your Chocobo will be a different color.

Colors are worked out by RGB values, and each snack you feed your Chocobo has its own RGB value. Your Chocobo’s default coloration is Desert Yellow, which has an RGB value of 216/180/87. As you feed it snacks, these values will change to reflect what you are feeding it, and after six hours it will change to the color that closest fits the RGB values of your Chocobo after it has eaten. This means you don’t need to get the color values you want to be absolutely perfect, just close enough.

Additionally, if you have already changed your Chocobo’s coloration and want to reset it back to Desert Yellow, you can simply feed it a Han Lemon to do so. If you make a mistake when feeding, remove your Chocobo from the stable and the change won’t take effect. If you still want to change the color of your mount, you’ll have to stable your Chocobo once more and begin the feeding process again, which also resets the six-hour timer too.

It is important to alternate between the snacks you are feeding your Chocobo, so you do not accidentally max out an RGB value, as if an RGB value reaches over 255 or goes below 0 then the color change will fail.

Available Snacks

There are seven snacks in total including the Han Lemon to revert your Chocobo back to default. All of these snacks can be obtained from Gardening, or alternatively, you can simply purchase them from the Market Board, under the Miscellany category.

  • Xelphatol Apple (RGB: +5/-5/-5) — Deepens red hue, reduces blue and green hues.
  • Doman Plum (RGB: -5/+5/+5) — Deepens blue and green hues, reduces red hue.
  • Mamook Pear (RGB: -5/+5/-5) — Deepens green hue, reduces blue and red hues.
  • Valfruit (RGB: +5/-5/+5) — Deepens blue and red hues, reduces green hue.
  • O’Ghomoro Berries (RGB: -5/-5/+5) — Deepens blue hue, reduces red and green hues.
  • Cieldalaes Pineapple (RGB: +5/+5/-5) — Deepens green and red hues, reduces blue hue.
  • Han Lemon — Restores default Desert Yellow coloration. (RGB: +5/-5/-5)

Colour Recipes

If you’re after a particular color for your Chocobo companion, we’ve got all the recipes for each one just below, detailing how many of each fruit you need to feed it in order to achieve the desired outcome.
