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.
Is this what "Obamanomics" is all about?
