Title in English: The ideal hen for organic and free range systems

Abstract / summary in English:

Organic and free range systems use layer genotypes selected for and in conventional indoor systems. This may be the reason for some animal health and welfare issues and also for reduced performance of layers in organic and free range systems. The aim of LowInputBreeds is to develop a system to evaluate layer genotypes in free range and organic systems and to optimise the management of those systems. Results of a questionnaire are described on this poster.
