The Featherless Chicken
Transcript of The Featherless Chicken
The genetic transformation and why
1. The new chicken would be lower in calories, faster-growing, environmentally friendly, and more likely to survive in warmer conditions, claims Avigdor Cahaner of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Benefits: Disease could be prevented by detecting people/plants/animals that are genetically prone to certain hereditary diseases, and preparing for the inevitable. Also, a featherless chicken doesn't have to be plucked so feathers and lard would not be polluting the earth
The current or future concerns should be considered by society
Critics say past experience with feather-free chickens resulting from random genetic mutation shows they suffer more than normal birds. Males have been unable to mate, because they cannot flap their wings, and "naked" chickens of both sexes are more susceptible to parasites, mosquito attacks and sunburn.
“The food prepared from bald chicken does not taste any different from those prepared from ordinary chicken,” say those who have just tasted the food prepared with bald chickens. Although featherless chickens look quite terrifying, poultry farm owners in many countries have shown keen interest in the birds because they will not need to be plucked.."
Valid research and data
They grow faster, and their meat is low fat. According to the head of the project, Professor Avigdor Cahaner, at the Agricultural Institute in Rehvot, Israel, such birds have more advantages because there will be no need to install air conditioners for them in warmer countries the genetic scientist admits that the new species of chickens are unlikely to adapt to cold climates. Consequently, breeding bald chicken in Scandinavian countries or Russia would be quite difficult.

Benefits of Transforming organisms
B.)He created his red-skinned chicken by selectively crossing a breed with a naturally bare neck with a regular broiler chicken.
C.) The featherless chicken doesn't have to be plucked so feathers and lard would not be polluting the earth.
A.) The featherless birds would tend to be leaner, and perhaps grow faster, which would improve the quality of the meat and save producers money.
Problems of Transforming Organisms
Nature is an extremely complex inter-related chain consisting of many species linked in the food chain. Some scientists believe that introducing genetically modified genes may have an irreversible effect with consequences yet unknown.
The genetic scientist admits that the new species of chickens are unlikely to adapt to cold climates. Consequently, breeding bald chickens in Scandinavian countries or Russia would be quite difficult.
~ The lack of the feathers would make it quicker to process more environmentally friendly.
~ People are usually uneasy about buying the genetically modified animal due to never seeing them before.
~ featherless chickens are more likely to survive in warmer conditions, climates, and
The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so called “chickens” are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC.
Have you ever seen KFC chicken?
Do you know why name change Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC.
~ Males are unable to mate because they cant flap their wings.
~chickens of both sexes are more susceptible to parasites, mosquito attacks and sunburns.
~ Featherless chickens could be the future of mass poultry farming in warmer countries.
