Free-range chickens and chickens raised in confinement were characterized by similar body weight gains, feed conversion (Table 2) and carcass traits (Table 3).
2000), there were no carcass and meat quality advantages from using a low nutrient feed (Fanatico et al.
1997) studied the impact of protein level and energy level on carcass and meat quality of slow-growing meat chickens grown to 12 wk and found that breast meat quality (chemical composition, grill loss, shear force) was only slightly influenced by feeding.
Housing conditions (with/without outdoor access) had no significant effect on the body weight of chickens, FCR and carcass traits.

Carcass and meat characteristics from free-range chickens.
Influence of intensity of nutrition on selected parameters of carcass and meat quality of French Label type chickens.
Effect of a free-range raising system on growth performance, carcass yield, and meat quality of slow-growing chicken.
Mr Carcas accuses judges in general and, by implication, Mr Justice Ouseley in particular in the Bideford Council case of a lack of balance.
If the decision had gone the other way Mr Carcas would have thought him the best and most balanced judge in the world.
