Seriously you Opened my eyes to something good. A Good happy chicken is a Good happy meal. thanks alot Dan again.
Commercial broilers do not receive hormones. I know Foster Farms does not give their chickens any drugs, and I imagine Tyson doesn't either. It is not legal to give hormones to meat chickens, and with their fast rate of growth there would be nothing to be gained by doing so anyway. I don't know why this hormones and meat chickens rumor persists. Their fast growth is due to genetics, not hormones. Except for the hormones they generate themselves, of course.
