As organic egg producer, we have a strong focus on animal welfare and to provide our hens the best possible conditions from chicken to adult hen.
We have white hens from breeding company Lohmann. It’s a hen, which is well suited for organic farming because it is robust and finely cope with the many weather changes that characterize the Danish climate. They also stable layers, and works really well in our system.
Our hens have a nice quiet behavior, and are curious by nature. The chicken is originally a forest bird, and therefore we have planted our large chicken farms with poplars. Here the hens feel safe and shelter for birds of prey. It is a pleasure every day to see how the hens go and enjoy themselves in small groups completely inside the poplar thicket
Forage provide healthy and happy hens
Besides the ample space both indoors and outdoors, get the hens every day lots of home grown organic forage quality. The roughage consists of clover, pea / barley, pea / lupine and corn. Roughage helps to activate the hens, and give them a good and healthy digestion.
Experiments with organic protein crops
In 2015, we participate in a pilot project from Seges to ensure that organic livestock in the future can be fed with Danish organic feed.
