Expert Answer:

The hens are the female animal: chicken or broilers that are reared for good meat. Due to some characteristics and care in poultry farming, they give good meat like-
(i) Hens (chicken) feed consists primarily of corn and soybean meal with the addition of essential vitamins and minerals, so the meat will be tender and good for consumption.
(ii) They are young and have not reached sexual maturity.
