Antibiotics are not present in any chicken sold in a grocery store.

It has been illegal since the 1950s to administer hormones or steroids to chickens.

No chicken you buy contains added hormones or steroids, regardless of whether or not this is called out on the label.

There are said to be more than 25 billion chickens on the planet

Which makes them the most abundant bird in the world.

A chicken egg takes approximately 21 days to incubate.
