Is broiler chicken halal in Islam?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I broiler chicken halal in islam?if it is halal in what aspects it is halal?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh. 

The term broiler is applied to chicks that have especially been bred for rapid growth. They are young chickens raised only for their meat. Broilers are usually slaughtered at approximately 35 to 49 days of age when they reach 1.5 kg live-weight[1].

The same ruling for any normal chicken would apply to a broiler chicken. Once it is slaughtered according to the requirements of Shari’ah it would be Halaal. 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
