Chicken is the most common type of poultry in the world which is raised in many places for its meat and eggs. It was among one of the first domesticated animals. A male chicken is called a rooster or a cockerel while a female chicken is called a hen. Because of its low cost, chicken meat (also called "chicken") is one of the most used kinds of meat in the world. There are only four pure Indian breeds of chicken that are available which include; Aseel which is further classified as Peela (Golden red), Yakub (Black and red), Nuri (White), Kagar (Black), Chitta (Black and white spotted), Java (Black), Sabja (White and golden or black with yellow or silver), Teekar (brown) and Reza (light red).

Make sure to buy freshly cut chicken from a chicken shop. While buying processed or packaged chicken ensure that it is not more than a day old.
There are extremely high chances of suffering from food poisoning from salmonella, campylobacter spp., and other bacteria and germs in chicken. Consuming a diet that’s very high on animal protein and low on fruit and vegetables could up your risk of cancer thus, regular consumption is not a fairly good idea. Arsenic is increasingly being made a part of chicken feed, mainly to ward off diarrhea, improve pigmentation, and help ensure good growth. However, this increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, neurological problems, and even cancer in humans. (3)
