LEAF Speak Out: Difficult Questions - Poultry

Why do you keep your chick­ens in houses? 

Our chick­ens are well fed, warm and dry in this tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled envi­ron­ment. Poul­try farm­ing requires many farm­ers to keep costs very low, this is anoth­er way of ensur­ing that we can pro­duce to the prices con­sumers are will­ing to pay. 

Do you rou­tine­ly feed your chick­ens antibiotics? 

We only use antibi­otics for our chick­ens when they have a treat­able infec­tion, just as the doc­tor would for you if you need them.
