Differences in the expression of genes in lame and normal broiler chickens identified by subtraction hybridisation


Differences in the expression of genes in lame and normal broiler chickens identified by subtraction hybridisation



Animal Welfare 12(4): 661-667



ISSN/ISBN: 0962-7286

In the UK, broiler chickens are normally slaughtered at about six weeks of age when they weigh approximately 2.2 kg; this contrasts with the growth of an 'unimproved' traditional strain of bird such as a White Sussex, which would weigh about 800 g at the same age. Lameness, characterised by abnormal gait, posture and impaired walking ability, can be prevalent in these rapidly growing birds and has been highlighted as a major welfare concern.
