Like most farm animals, chickens are labeled according to their end purpose.
A chicken bred for its egg-laying prowess is a “layer.” A chicken bred for plumpness – large drumsticks and breast – is a “broiler.” They grow faster, reaching slaughter weight between two and three months of age. They behave and walk differently – and spend more time lying down than their layer counterparts.
