An old chicken refers to a female chicken that has reached a certain age, but there is no exact definition to define a hen reaching a certain age as an “old” chicken. Generally speaking, a hen has been raised for more than 300 days and has Eggs, especially hatched chicks, which can be called old chickens. The reason why the old chicken soup is respected by many people is mainly from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine that the chicken of the hen belongs to the yin, which is more suitable for pregnant women, the elderly, the infirm and those with chronic illness. And old hens have more umami substances in chicken than young chickens because of the long growth period, which is the main reason for making chicken soup more delicious. In addition, the fat content of old hens is relatively high, and the stewed soup is more fragrant.
