Raw chicken is dropped by chickens when they die. Each chicken drops one raw chicken. It does not matter if the player was involved in the chicken's death, and the Looting enchantment will not increase the number of raw chicken drops.
To eat raw chicken, right-click and hold while raw chicken is selected in the hotbar.
Eating raw chicken restores 2 hunger () and 1.2 hunger saturation, but has a 30% chance of inflicting food poisoning for 30 seconds (a Hunger effect). Drinking milk will end the food poisoning immediately.
Raw chicken can be used to heal or breed tamed wolves without risk of food poisoning.
