Pickle Pee, Pump-a-Rum Crow (or "Nestling") is an NPC in Dark Souls 3.

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

Location

 

Trade

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)

Note: None of the weapons you offer must be upgraded for the trade to be accepted(if you offer a Avelyn+1  the trade won't go off).

 

 

Dialogue

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."

Trivia

  • "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 and soft items.
  • Dark Souls II version is known as Dyna & Tilo.

      I did not know you can now just pick the item up and don't have to return to the bonfire first. Using Homeward makes the item disappear, that much I learned when I left a Siegbrau...

          So fun fact. If you drop an item (my case lighting urn) and accidently hit the back jump button off the rafters and die before picking up the item, the item will not be there when you return and dropping another lighting urn will be refused. Got rejected an iron helm, rip solaire cosplay.

            Everyone depicts Pickle Pee as like a cute anime harpy in fan art and stuff, what if From Soft one day confirms what she looks like and she’s actually one of the ****in crow demons from the painted world in ds1

              Looks like quite a few people skipped DS2 and missed out on the QoL change of not needing to reload or kill yourself for the nest item to change. That karma come back with a vengeance.

                It should noted. None of the equipment you hand in can be upgraded. Not just the Mendicant's Staff.

                I got rejected everytime I tried popping in +'d gear.

                  The first time I ever traded an item I thought it was like Dark Souls 1. I quit the game and re-entered, and, to my surprise, the item was gone.
                  Genius move.

                      You can trade with her twice in the same playthrough by going to both of her nests by not leaving the area and hitting both locations right after each other

                          i dropped my coiled sword fragment and exit the game cuz i thought it was the same like DS1. Good thing that Dark Souls is a game where you dont have to look up every single thing cuz***** like this could happen.
