The All-Clucking Cucco – Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Listen to the prophecies of the All-Clucking Cucoo to find the whereabouts of Princess Zelda

To complete the Potential Princess Sightings side adventure, you must visit 12 stables around Hyrule. Each visit to a stable will give you another side adventure. Amongst those stable quests is The All-Clucking Cucco in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

For this side quest, Penn will ask you to investigate a strange Cucco with strange powers to locate Princess Zelda’s whereabouts. We’ll tell you all you need to know to start and complete this side quest efficiently in Zelda: Totk.

Talk to Penn at South Akkala Stable

After starting the Potential Princess Sightings side quest, the All-Clucking Cucco side quest can be unlocked by visiting South Akkala Stable in the Akkala Region.


You can start the Potential Princess Sightings side quest by talking to Traysi at the Lucky Clover Gazette near the entrance of Rito Village.

The stable can be found North of Akkala Citadel Ruins and near the Kanalet Ridge. You can trace these coordinates to reach the location: (3160, 1690, 0201).

It is to the west of Tarrey Town and Southwest of Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower. The nearest shrine to this stable is the Mayachideg Shrine.

Once you reach the Stable, find Penn (3165, 1717, 0201) and talk to him. That will trigger the All-Clucking Cucco side adventure.

Complete the errands for All-Clucking Cucco

After the side quest starts, you will first have to find and talk to the All-Knowing Cucco. It will be on top of a hill northeast of South Akkala Stable.

Talk to the bird, and before it tells you anything, it will test you twice.

Climb the top of the South Akkala Stable

The first task is to climb the giant rock horse at the top of the South Akkala Stable. You will have 45 seconds to go from the starting position to the top. You can use any method if you don’t exceed the given time limit.

The easiest method involves using the Ascend ability. Climb to the top of the stable and position yourself below the horse’s head. Once you are directly beneath it, use the Ascend ability to climb it.


You can use elixirs that increase your movement speed to gain a temporary advantage.

This way, you will reach the top of the South Akkala Stable, completing the first challenge presented by the All-Clucking Cucco.

Cut and deliver three Trees

Once you are done with the first test, you will teleport back to the All-Knowing Cucco. It will ask you if you want to do the second trial, which involves cutting down three trees and bringing them back to the top of the hill in under 90 seconds (near the Cucoo location).

Looking exactly toward the right, you will see a couple of trees. Run to them and cut them with an axe or a sword. Now, use Ultrahand to combine the three of them and bring them back using the same power.

This makes it easier to transport them all together. Once you do, the trial will end.

Defeat the Yiga Clan Soldiers

Now, you will head back to hear about the prophecy regarding Princess Zelda. But you’ll soon find out it was all a clever ploy by Yiga Clan. The All-Knowing Cucco will transform into a Yiga Clan Foot soldier, and you will be ambushed by three enemies.

You can take them down quite easily if you know a bit about them. They are quick and can teleport to attack you. But there is a slight delay between them appearing, and a smoke cloud will appear at the destination to which they will teleport.

You can attack them with arrows as soon as they appear, and that is how you can take them down. Once all of them are down, a cutscene will play.

Quest Reward

After the fight, Penn will come flying down and ask about the whole incident. At the end of the conversation, he will give you some Rupees depending on your progress through the Potential Princess Sightings side quest (50-100 Rupees).

This will complete the All-Clucking Cucco side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
