After unlocking access to Viktor's Workshop and its Slimeulations, one of the first rewards from successfully catching Glitch Slimes and submitting their bug reports is the so-called Chicken Cloner, which promises to "Double your chickens, half of the time". The other half, the chicken is simply vaporized with no trace.
Now, mathematically speaking, if each chicken has a 1/2 chance of being destroyed, and a 1/2 chance of producing another chicken, then the expected number chickens from each cloning attempt is... 1. No gain, no loss. Can I improve my chances and clone more chickens consistently, somehow?
