Ive read this a couple of times now whilst Ive been researching raising my own table birds but am still a little unsure as to what exactly this means ?

From what I understand this is a young bird raised for the table, bit like a green duckling.
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

I always understood 'broilers' to be older chickens that were 'for the pot', ie a bit too old for a roast or anything fancy, but perfectly ok to boil up, pick and add make into a curry or suchlike.  (One of a plethora of student jobs was as kitchen 'dogsbody')

I always thought that "broil" was an American term for grill/roast

As far as I know, commercial "broilers" are culled at 8-9 weeks for the table

I always though it was an older bird (older than the 6 week norm) with a bit more flavour .
I may just be confusing American broiler with the British old boiler.
