Our 1600 chickens have a substantial amount of space in 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. However, due to the special way of keeping them, 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. This type of husbandry requires a lot of space since each chicken occupies 6 square meters of land while at the same time different areas lie idle for regeneration.
