Westover, Maryland - March 20, 2017: Two curious slow growth chickens investigate what's going on on the other side of their pen at Perdue's Westover Test Farm Monday March 20, 2017. The test farm hatches, houses, and studies the differences between slow growth chickens and the company's conventional chickens. The slow growth chickens are lighter than the conventional chickens which allows them to be more active, social, and perch. Perdue is also starting to implement windows in their chicken houses.
