Summary

Onderzoek weerspreekt dat kippen met onbehandelde snavels eerder kaal en kaler worden dan behandelde hennen, zoals vaak wordt gesteld. Er is weinig verschil in verenkleed tussen bio- en vrije-uitloophennen.

Summary translation

Research contradicts that chickens with untreated beaks are sooner bare and barren then treated hens, as is often stated. There is little difference in plumage between organic and free-range hens.
