Why do some chicken breasts have a lot of gross veins and darker parts and others don’t at all

In: Other

I read an article recently that said if you see your chicken breast with lots of white striations through them then that means a lot of growth hormones were used to make them grow bigger faster and if it looks fairly evenly pink that means it was not aggressively grown

I’ve honestly never seen chicken breasts with veins. There’s a small part of a vein that’s on every cut (like less than a cm) that I always remove before preparing but never seen any through the meat.
Could it be US meat vs EU meat? Could you take a pic of what you mean?
