Chickens: pretty good. Do we need to improve them? Maybe.
The world is gettin hot. Too hot for chickens. The USDA is trying to make a chicken that doesn't mind the heat. "By identifying genes that help hot-weather chickens tolerate warmth — for example, genes that inhibit feathering around the neck — researchers might be able to breed the traits into other populations," Bloomberg reports.
Damn... first they're making better eggs then they're making better chickens. Yeah right... hot ass chickens sweating from their ugly ass necks.
Is this what "Obamanomics" is all about?
