Experimental Animal Facility Poultry


In the modern Experimental Animal Facility Poultry, animals are kept in seven floor pen sections of the same size. The maximum capacity is 1,750 animals.  

Both broilers and laying hens can be studied in variable group or individual housing situations. The animals are purchased from a commercial hatchery or breeder.

An IT-assisted system controls the climate in the sections. Water is also supplied by sections using an adaptable nipple watering system.

Incubators and directly connected laboratories are included in the research facilities.
