"This prized meat can be obtained from certain birds. It gets full points for flavor, nutrition, and volume. It pairs perfectly with other ingredients or can be enjoyed alone."
— In-game description

The Raw Whole Bird is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a curative item that restores Link's health by refilling three Heart Containers. It is dropped by White Pigeons or by Eldin Ostriches found in Eldin Canyon, Eldin Mountains, and Death Mountain. It can also be purchased from certain traveling merchants.

Like Raw Gourmet Meat, it is a "Gourmet" quality meat, the highest one, and Link can cook with it to prepare Gourmet Poultry Curry and Gourmet Poultry Pilaf. Using five "Gourmet" meats results in a Meat Skewer which fully restores health. Link can roast a Raw Whole Bird to prepare a Roasted Whole Bird which restores four and a half hearts, and can freeze it to prepare a Frozen Whole Bird which restores three hearts and grants Level 1 heat resistance for 1:00.
