Poultry Day takes place on March 19, 2017. Chicken, turkey and other birds we commonly consume are celebrated on this day. Poultry is a category of domesticated birds kept by humans for the purpose of collecting their eggs, or killing for their meat and/or feathers. Poultry is the second most widely eaten meat in the world, accounting for about 30% of meat production worldwide, after pork at 38%.
Chicken meat contains about two to three times as much polyunsaturated fat as most types of red meat when measured by weight. A 100g serving of baked chicken breast contains 4 grams of fat and 31 grams of protein, compared to 10 grams of fat and 27 grams of protein for the same portion of broiled, lean skirt steak.
