  1. How about that? That living space you just saw in these pictures for “adult” broilers; that was plenty. There are facilities that are crowded even more.

  2. This would be very sad if I didn’t hate birds. It all dates back to when a pigeon pooped on my head when I was five years old.

  3. Hey Russia, don’t raise your own, buy American. You’re the only ones that want the dark meat we Americans dislike, that keeps the price of the clean- looking white meat breast affordable for us.

  4. I use to have chickens, I hatched the first chick myself, it was born on March 25th and I named her Elton. She grew into a beautiful hen and was always my favorite.

  5. How things has changed from the 90-s, when Russia imported the major part of the chicken meat.
    In the latest six years Russia has created its own poultry industry, one of the most modern in the world (the poultry factories in the USA are 40-20 years old, those of Euorope 20-10 years old, the Russian ones only 5-3 years old, use the most modern tecnologies ).
    It looks like this year they will decrease the import of the chicken meat another time and the next year Russia will start to export the chicken meat, how things has changed…
