It is fed primarily by rain; freshets occur in summer and fall. The mean flow rate is 265 cu m per sec. The Chikoi freezes over in late October or November, freezing through in the shallows in the upper course; the ice breaks up in April or early May. The largest tributary on the left is the Menza. The Chikoi is used for irrigation. The health resort of Iamarovka is located in the Chikoi valley.
