Enter the edible weight (g) and the raw total weight (g) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Chicken Yield. 

Chicken Yield Formula

CY = EW / RW * 100


  • CY is the Chicken Yield (%)
  • EW is the edible weight (g)
  • RW is the raw total weight (g)

To calculate Chicken Yield, divide the edible chicken weight by the total weight, then multiply by 100.

How to Calculate Chicken Yield?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Chicken Yield.

  1. First, determine the edible weight (g). 
  2. Next, determine the raw total weight (g). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CY = EW / RW * 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Chicken Yield.
  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.

edible weight (g) = 500

raw total weight (g) = 600
