Enter the number of chickens and the total area (ft^2) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Chicken Density. 

Chicken Density Formula

CD = C / A


  • CD is the Chicken Density (chicken/ft^2)
  • C is the number of chickens
  • A is the total area (ft^2)

To calculate Chicken Density, divide the number of chickens by the total area.

How to Calculate Chicken Density?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Chicken Density.

  1. First, determine the number of chickens. 
  2. Next, determine the total area (ft^2). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CD = C / A.
  4. Finally, calculate the Chicken Density.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

number of chickens = 3000

total area (ft^2) = 2300
