Our 1600 chickens have a lot of space in the nearby Serwest, a village just a few kilometres from Brodowin. When we started keeping laying hens in 2011, the animals were still scratching and pecking on the orchards in and around Brodowin. But due to the special way of keeping 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 mobile stables can be moved on at regular intervals to ensure that there is always enough fresh greenery outside. Since each chicken occupies 6m2 of land and different areas are always lying idle for regeneration, this type of husbandry requires a lot of space.
