2902-1098 (APSC-149NP) Leg and foot problems in domestic fowl can be a serious welfare problem, with consequences for production too. Most leg and foot disorders in fowl can be prevented through proper nutrition and management. However, some problems can be genetic. For modern meat-type birds such as broiler chickens and turkeys, the problems become very complex since the birds put on weight faster than they build their bone structure to support the weight. Here we consider the causes of these problems in fowl. By taking proper management precautions, you can prevent leg and foot disorders from ever occurring. 8..5" x 11", 5 pages, DS, color pages 2,3, and 5, 24#, single staple upper left.
