Contact dermatitis, both on the foot pads and hocks, is a well-known health issue in broilers. Less is known about contact dermatitis in broiler breeders, however, although they have many risk factors for developing leg health problems in common with broilers.
Gregarious nesting has often been observed in laying hens, where hens prefer to visit a nest already occupied by other hens over empty nests.
European farms for broiler breeders often have raised slatted areas in front of the nests, but in other regions of the world no raised slatted areas are provided. This study aimed to investigate the effects of a raised slatted area on leg health, mating...
Optimising nest design for broiler breeders has benefits for both the animals and the producers. The welfare of the hens will increase by providing preferred housing, while also reducing eggs laid outside the nests. These floor eggs cause economic losses by...
The quality of day old chicks is crucial for profitable broiler production, but a difficult trait to define. In research, both qualitative and quantitative measures are used with variable predictive value for subsequent performance. In hatchery practice,...

A partir das lições aprendidas no campo, o Vencomatic Group desenvolveu diretrizes para manter as aves em alojamentos livres de gaiolas. Chamamos este trabalho de manejo de aves. Com bons sistemas de alojamento e técnicas de manejo de aves, é possível abrigar uma grande quantidade de aves em nossos sistemas livres de gaiolas.
