Our 1600 chickens have a substantial amount of space in Serwest, a village just a few kilometres from Brodowin, to reach maturity. When we started keeping layers (hens) in 2011, the animals were still scratching and pecking on the orchards in and around Brodowin. However, due to the special way of conformity, these areas soon became insufficient.
The special feature of our chicken husbandry, in which the University for Sustainable Development in Eberswalde (HNEE) is our partner, are our mobile chicken wagons. These stables move at regular intervals to ensure that there is always enough fresh greenery outside. Since each chicken occupies 6 of land and different areas are always lying idle for regeneration, this type of husbandry requires a lot of space.
