Laying hens are not egg-laying machines. Proper care requires knowledge of the animal and the ability to apply it in practice. For optimal results.
Not all poultry farmers make full use of the potential of their animals. Whether caged or floor-raised, for good performance during the production period, management should be correct and efficient. But how do you know that what you are doing is right? Your chickens are constantly sending signals: about their health, how well they know their environment and whether they are comfortable.
Do you recognise the signals your chickens are sending? Do you know the difference between abnormal, runny droppings and healthy appendix droppings? Are you able to recognise abnormalities in the eggs and trace them back to the cause? And do something about it?
If you can spot the signs that point to possible problems, then make sure you are equipped with information to take the appropriate steps to get your flock back on track. To do this, however, you need to know all the details of your own farm and be able to assess the impact of these changes on your animals.
Layer Signals is a practical guide that shows you how to recognise your birds’ signals early, how to interpret them and what action you can take.
Layer Signals presents practical knowledge on animal welfare in a simple, accessible format.
