jaybeezey: So someone out there seems to think that a chicken can't stand a 5 degree temp swing? Also, I though we were off Global "Warming" and on to Climate Change. Has anyone thought to find a chicken that can live in less rain or more or in an area that gets hail more often or less or how about a chicken that deal with getting fewer tornadoes, but the tornadoes that they do experience are all F5 (finger of god, man) in size?These fools! Don't they know the new talking points!

lawboy87: perhaps you should explore what other faults exist in your "thoughts."

DontMakeMeComeBackThereThis is stupid. Chickens are raised everywhere in this country from Kansas City to Phoenix, in a much wider range of temperatures that even run away "Global Warming" would create.
pdee: Its stories like this that make more people doubt climate change.Wiki suggests chickens were domesticated 6000 years ago. Here is a temp graph for the last 10k years:[jonova.s3.amazonaws.com image 829x493]It looks like they have survived higher temps on their own. With selective breeding they should have no problems for another 100 years. By then we should be able to manipulate their DNA directly for heat tolerance.
AlgaeRancher: Last time I checked chickens come from Southeast Asiawhich is a pretty warm place[mygreenspace.nparks.gov.sg image 814x350]

FormlessOne: Again, it's not "will we have chickens?" Of course we'll have chickens. The question being asked is "will we have marketable chickens?" The answer is, well, no, not if they keel over because they can't survive the heat - the cost of chicken will skyrocket as farmers struggle to keep them alive, cool, and productive.
