Chickens refusing to eat the maize they had been fed has led to the discovery that their feed had been genetically modified to include a well-known weed and insect killer.
Strilli Oppenheimer's African indigenous chickens were refusing to eat the mealies in the chicken feed bought from a large supplier. Concerned that the birds may be classified sting genetically modified maize, the maize she had tested.
The results confirmed Oppenheimer's initial suspicion - the maize had been genetically engineered to produce proteins that are toxic to certain insects and weeds.
About her chickens' refusal to eat their maize, Oppenheimer said: "They're smart."
