This article is about the drop from an ordinary chicken. For the item dropped by undead chickens, see Raw chicken (undead).

A Raw chicken is an item that has two main uses: as an uncooked food item, and to make a dreadfowl pouch in Summoning.

Players can obtain one by killing a chicken or (less commonly) a rooster. Alternatively, players can buy them at the Canifis raw meat shop, which is reasonably close to a bank or Wydin's Food Store for 60 gp with a default stock of 10.


Use as food

Players can turn a raw chicken into a cooked chicken by using it on a fire or a range. Doing so requires only level 1 Cooking, and grants 30 experience points[1].

These are popular amongst new players, since any player can attempt to cook them (though players with low Cooking levels risk producing a burnt chicken). Chickens are also found around Lumbridge, and are easy to kill.

Use in Summoning

One raw chicken is needed as a teritary in the Summoning skill to make a dreadfowl pouch, which is the most efficient way to train Summoning below level 10. This also requires 8 spirit shards and a gold charm, and gains 9.3 experience[2].

Use in Quests

During Recipe for Disaster, a player needs a raw chicken to access the lair of the evil chicken. The player needs the raw chicken to access the lair even after the quest. This allows a player to fight Black dragons and Baby black dragons. Raw chicken is also needed in Druidic Ritual.


A raw chicken used to be a very low-value item, but their use in Summoning has caused the price to sky-rocket. The general store sells them for 79 coins, even when many are in stock, but will still not pay anything to buy them. The Grand Exchange sells and buys them for a price of 140-160 coins, which make it a very profitable business for new members.

Since Summoning is a members-only skill, members may buy raw chickens for a reasonably-high price, especially around the Summoning shop in Taverley. However, members who wish to buy raw chickens in bulk may well be better off logging onto a free-to-play server and buying them at a lower price from non-members, especially low-level players.

Conversely, this could provide income for low-level non-members, as they can easily obtain raw chickens whilst training on chickens. However, since they cannot log onto members' servers, they would have to rely on members coming to them to buy. Very few non-members would pay anything to buy raw chickens.

The raw chicken dropped by undead chickens is green, and has different examine text. When cooked, it heals 1 hitpoint, and the player character produces a line expressing disgust.
