Wondering how to find all of the Far Cry 6 roosters and get the Recrooster trophy and achievement? This guide shows you their locations across Yara.

Once you make it to Montero Farm in Madrugada, you’ll open up the cockfighting mini-game, where you’ll be able to earn pesos by pitting rooster against rooster. There are a total of 19 Far Cry 6 roosters you can collect to fight in the ring, but only 13 of them (Yara’s Fiercest Fighters) count toward the Recrooster trophy and achievement, and their locations are spread all around Yara’s four primary regions.

The remaining six roosters (Yara’s Avian Mercenaries) are received as Ubisoft rewards and don’t count toward the total for Recrooster, so you needn’t worry about those birds. This guide will show your where to find every rooster you need to complete this collectibles collection and have a full cockfighting roster.

How to Find All Roosters in Far Cry 6

You’ll be searching for rooster locations in each of Yara’s four major regions: Madrugada, Valle De Oro, El Este, and Esperanza; there aren’t any to find on Isla Santuario. You can keep track of how many roosters you’ve collected by pausing the game and going over to the Collections tab. As you explore, stay on the lookout for a white cage icon on your minimap, showing the location of each cage. 

Madrugada Roosters

El Rato is likely one of the first roosters you’ll collect because they’re so easy to find. This rooster is inside the fence at the cockfighting ring at Montero Farm. They’re to the right of the ring in a crate with red rope on it.
