Introduction

Broilers are chickens raised for meat production and have long been selected for increased meat yields. In the 1950s, it took approximately 11 weeks to raise a 3.5-pound broiler.[1'2] Nowadays, a 5-pound broiler can be raised in 6 to 7 weeks. While genetic and nutritional contributions are extremely important, the full potential of broilers cannot be reached unless the proper environment is maintained in the broiler house. The basic needs of a broiler include: a source of heat during brooding and cold weather, cooling during hot weather, good air quality, food, water, and protection from disease. Broiler houses are designed to meet these needs in a cost-efficient manner.
