Transcript of Featherless Chicken

Featherless Chickens could be the future of mass poultry farming in warmer countries. "Critics say past experiences with featherless chickens resulting from random genetic mutation shows they suffer more than normal birds." Featherless Chickens Featherless birds would be very susceptible to any temperature variations. There are potential benefits of not having feathers ;for example, nutrients wouldn't go into producing feathers, and there would be no feathers to get rid of at the end. Some drawbacks include :Males might be 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 new chicken would be lower in calories, faster growing, environmentally friendly, and more likely to survive in warmer conditions. The featherless chickens were created by cross breeding a broiler chicken with a species with a mostly featherless neck. The idea behind the development of the featherless chicken was to create a more energy efficient chicken that can live well in warmer countries where feathered chickens don't do well.
