    Bibliolept is right: it could be either alive or dead. But if it is alive, then it probably won't be for long. It is probably in the slaughterhouse or will soon be sent there. All chickens begin at less than 2 1/2 lbs but they are not all called broilers. It is only when the decision has been made to process them at that size that the term would be applied.
