Raw chicken is a food item which can be eaten by the player, or cooked in a furnace to make cooked chicken.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Chickens[edit | edit source]

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. The amount of raw chicken dropped is affected by the Looting enchantment.

Chickens that die while on fire will drop cooked chicken instead.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Food[edit | edit source]

To eat raw chicken, press and hold use while it is selected in the hotbar. Eating one restores 2 (Hunger.svg) hunger and 1.2 hunger saturation, but has a 30% chance of inflicting food poisoning (the
effect for 30 seconds).

Cooking ingredient[edit | edit source]

Wolves[edit | edit source]

Raw chicken can be used to breed and heal tamed wolves, lead them around, and make baby tamed wolves grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time.

Wolves are at no risk of food poisoning.

Butcher villagers will buy 14–18 raw chicken for an emerald.
