About The EFSA AHAW panel is requested to develop several scientific opinions concerning animal based measures to assess the welfare of livestock animals. The main objective of this report is to review the broiler welfare literature to identify gaps and potential areas to strengthen and update three SCAHAW and EFSA opinions: 1) The welfare of chickens kept for meat production (broilers), 2) Influence of genetic parameters on the welfare and resistance to stress of commercial broilers, 3) Welfare aspects of the management and housing of the grand-parent and parent stocks raised and kept for breeding purposes.
