Rate of Chicken Growth

chicaraleigh | Aug 20, 2008 09:21 AM

I just heard some news that has disturbed me greatly and I'm hoping to get some clarification.

I was told that the amount of time that it takes to "grow" a chicken from egg to store shelf is 1 week due to hormone injections, etc. This info was gathered from a licensed nutritionist.

I'm curious - what is a normal growth rate for a chicken and is 1 week really possible?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
