Have all chickens been raised with antibiotics? The answer is yes  approximately 90%. Why is it that we see “antibiotic free”  labels? Because all poultry enter a “withdraw  period” of 14 days before being sent for processing then to the  market, This ensures  there is no trace of antibiotics. So to truly have antibiotic free chicken think about  raising your own chickens or find someone who doesn’t raise them from the start with antibiotics. 

The law is changing as we speak to reduce the antibiotics in poultry and entering  a probiotic treatment, a more natural way of reducing diseases. The fact is that poultry is exposed to lots of disease  is a reality and avian flu is huge   ( remember China and other Asian avian flu years ago)
