Poultry constitute a valuable source of protein for human diets in the form of both meat and eggs. They are well adapted for confinement and intensive systems of production. When produced in such systems, they offer minimum competition with humans for space and are even more efficient than the pig in converting high energy feeds, such as grain, into meat and eggs.
