These chickens don't eat other chickens I take it.
I read somewhere that chicken grown in 42-63 days will have very litte taste of chicken unless they are fed waste meat from other chicken. Also, to get enough calcium to develop their skeleton that fast, the feed contains the ground bones of slaughtered chicken; this also contributes to the taste.

And still, they never taste anything like a hen (as opposed to a chicken) did in the old days! Tastewise, chicken is to 95% nothing but a substrate for the taste of spices. The day I retire, I might start breeding slow-grow chicken/hens in the back yard to get myself some old style hen meat.

Same with eggs: The number of eggs per hen has almost tripled since the 1980s. So the same total amount of taste is spread out on three times as many eggs, with one third on each.

Two weeks ago I bought myself a (butchered) sheep - I do not want the mild, delicate lamb meat, but something with a firm, strong taste. Something like game. This sheep was of a special "wild" breed, with a double jacket of wool so they can live outdoors through the winter, eating wild grass, shrubs and berries. The meet gets tasty even though the are not fed ground mutton!
