How to Change Chocobo Color in Final Fantasy XIV

All you need to change the color of your chocobo in FFXIV is fruit and a stable. Then, there is no color that your Chocobo can’t be.

Where to Change Chocobo Color in FFXIV

To change the color of your Chocobo, you must visit a stable. The only way to visit stables is to go to a housing district.

You can do this at your Free Company stables or at your house if you buy a Chocobo Stables from the marketboard or Housing Merchant.

The Process of Changing Chocobo Color

The first thing you do is head to the stables and stable your chocobo. Make sure you also have Chocobo food (below) in your inventory.

Then, interact with the stable, go to “Tend Your Chocobo” and click on “Feed.”

To change the color of your chocobo, you must feed it (as many fruits as you want). Then, wait six hours to see a color difference.

Feed it another fruit(s) to adjust the color. Keep doing this until you reach the desired color.

How to Check the Color of Your Chocobo

You can see the name of the color of your Chocobo by popping up its menu. Go to your Companion’s Appearance menu and see what it says under “Current Color.”

That’s a good way to check if you have reached the desired color and it’s not what you thought it would be.
