Management

Managing laying hens requires careful attention to a number of areas including the farm environment (ventilation, temperature, lighting) and the type of housing system.

As your litter moves from the breeding stage to the beginning of lay and the end of lay, the birds will have specific needs in their diet and environmental conditions. To ensure that egg production remains high and that birds are eating well, there are a number of resources available to help maintain good performance.

Our technical service team is always available to help you with any management question or answer any questions you may have.
