EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from English broiler around 1960.

The exact way this term found its way into East German terminology is uncertain and subject to debate. Due to general economic problems, East Germany was dependent on foodstuff imports throughout its history; one possibility therefore is that chickens were at one point imported from Anglophone countries, e.g. the USA. Another theory instead suggests that Bulgaria used the English loanword бройлери (brojleri) to better market their own chickens for export to the West.
