Fake and real about broiler No. 5

FAKE: “A traditionally reared animal, to give an example, weighs 1.2 kg, maximum 1.5 kg at 4 months of age: the broiler chicken, in just 45-50 days of life, weighs almost 3 kg.

WHY IT’S A FAKE: This is precisely one of the advantages of using modern breeds, which, by the way, eat much less than traditional breeds while growing more. A benefit called ‘feed conversion ratio’.
