Chicken on ground

Detailed Description

A Delaware breed chicken is part of a controlled experiment to better determine what effect (if any) neonicotinoid-treated seeds have on birds that consume them. Results from this experiment may inform future field research on the potential sublethal effects of agricultural practices on Washington state sage grouse, a state-endangered species. For more information contact Nimish Vyas or Paula Henry.
