Pickle Pee, Pump-a-Rum Crow is an NPC in Dark Souls 3.

  • You cannot attack this NPC and you cannot see her.




In order to trade with it/them, drop an item (by selecting 'leave' in the item menu) on either the roof nest or the nest in the shrine rafters, and pick up the item she gives you in return. Do not leave the area or exit the game or the item she dropped will be lost. If she doesn't want the item you offered, she will say no, and will return your item. 

You may only trade one of each item per New Game cycle.

Note: You also learn the Call Over Gesture the first time you trade an item that gives a "Pickle pee" response from the crow. (eleonora, mendicant's staff and avelyn still needs verification)




First encounter dialogue

You, you! Me me Pickle Pee! Me, me Pump-a-rum!"

(trade) "Pump-a-rum, pump-a-rum!"

(trade) "Pickle-pee, pickle-pee!"

(no trade) "You, you. No, no. That no pickle pee, that no pump-a-rum."

(same item) "You, you. Not that. Enough, enough."

(all items?) "???"



  • "Pickle-pee" and "Pump-a-rum" come from an old children's poem called "The Ceremonial Band" by James Reeves. In the poem, "pickle-pee" is the sound of a fife and "pump-a-rum" is the sound of a drum.
  • The crow is referred to as "Nestling" in the end credits, and is voiced by Clare Corbett. The official strategy guide refers to the crow as 'The Nestling of Firelink Shrine (Snuggly The Crow)" and states the crow is rumored to be named Snuggly.
  • Demon's Souls version is known as Sparkly the Crow, because she only accepted sparkling items.
  • Dark Souls version is known as Snuggly the Crow, because she only accepted warm items.
  • Dark Souls II version is known as Dyna & Tilo.

        If you sit still at the nest, pickle pee begins excitedly repeating herself. can't confirm yet if it is the same excited sounding dialogue as when one has the entire sunlight set.

            It should be noted that wearing Solaire's set makes Pickle-Pee excited, she doesn't give any items, but her dialogue is essentially the same except her voice gets more cheerful, just a fun little tid-bit.

              Dropping my mendicant's staff +9 cause i dont need it anymore for the shield but she's refusing it. Does she not accept upgraded weapons? If so oh my god it will take forever to farm this again

                I tried today trading about 7 items on NG++? I think you guys messed up because i have the Thank You,Hello,I'm Sorry,Very Good and Help Me Carvings (sorry if i missed one lol)

                • Where's the rest of the information?09 Sep 2016 15:19  

                  Trading a homeward bone gets you the call over gesture, ALONG with the Iron Bracelets. Someone needs to mention the other stuff you can get from this crow chick.

                  • Weird trade...08 Sep 2016 16:57  

                    According to the page, it says that if you trade the Coiled Sword Fragment, you receive a Titanite Slab.<br/><br/>..............<br/><br/>HA! Like I would trade an item that lets me return to Firelink or another bonfire infinitely and I keep it for all new game cycles for a silly slab that I can get, like, six more times in one new game cycle. I laugh at you Fromsoft, HA!

                      I started as deprived. Each time I chose black firebomb as starting gift. I went to maiden and purchased a bunch of firebombs, a dagger, a prism stone, and a large leather shield. I went and killed the crystal lizard over the wall by tossing firebombs. Then I jumped on roof using tree. Then in one crow transaction, I traded, a black firebomb, a regular firebomb, a homeward bone (I grabbed on the roof), a prism stone, and a large leather shield. Then, when i went to pick stuff up i tapped x real fast (the speed probably doesn't matter cause it did this multiple times), it left me 5 twinkling titanite and 4 titanite chunks. This is s regular, day one install, i used to test anri's sword but figured this should be worth mentioning.
