Description It is well known that free-range system contributes to better chicken welfare and products, however, rare studies focus on the modulations. Here, we designed a rebounding experiment, which contains parallel feeding groups and intergroup conversions to demonstrate and self-verify the difference between free-ranged and caged chickens. This study analyzed multi-aspects of chicken characteristics, including production performance, product quality, behavior, body condition, and physiological indicators, which disclose the comprehensive differences. More importantly, we analyzed the possible roles of gene expression and microbiome in these phenotypic characteristics.
