Westover, Maryland - March 20, 2017: Perdue's conventional chickens mostly eat and sit -- a normal life for top heavy factory-farm-grown-chickens. Their weight makes perching on hay bails and ramps difficult. These chickens, however, have slow growth chickens as neighbors at Perdue's Westover Test Farm. The test farm hatches, houses, and studies the differences between slow growth chickens and their conventional chickens.
