Transforming the Way we Think About Raising Chickens

The June 2016 release of "2016 and Beyond: Next Generation of Perdue Commitments to Animal Care" represents changes in the way we think about raising chickens. The four-part plan consists of:

Progress

1. Accelerating our progress in animal care

Farmers

2. Strengthening our relationships with farmers

Trust

3. Building trust with multiple stakeholder groups

Improvement

4. Creating an animal care culture for continued improvement

Chicken care advancements in the plan include increasing bird activity through natural lighting and enrichments, research with slower-growing breeds and a commitment to move from electrical to gas stunning.
