Bamboo-Fed Chicken System
The goal of this project is to create a system to feed chickens bamboo shoots in a healthy, sustainable way. (below is the full description. Click the link so see the full final presentation of the p... roject.)Alabama falls second in obesity of all the states in the US. Steroids injected in animals is a big factor. Steroids in animal feed raise levels of estrogens in the human body, which causes obesity. Alabama comes in second place for the highest rate n obesity at 32.1%.In the 1950s chickens were slaughtered at 70 days, today they are twice as big and slaughtered at only 48 days. They do not need to be this big and there should be an alternative way to grow them. By feeding chick- ens with bamboo leaves there won’t be a need to inject them with drugs. Bamboo leaves contain chlorophyll which fightsinfections; lactone that treats the cardiovascular system; chlorophyll which helps the formation of red blood cells and building a stronger immune system.The bamboo plant be grown on the same land as the free-range Russian Orloff chickens. Having the chickens grow at the same place as their food is a sustainable way of farming. Bamboo forests enhance soil and water conservation, it works as a great fertilizer so there is no need for pesticides. Wild chickens eat insects, winged ants and earthworms which are all rich in fat and protein. Rich soil will attract three times more earthworms. Bamboo is generally known to spread fast, but certain breeds such as fargesia robusta are clumpers. They do not spread beyond where they are planted.
