Title in English: Body condition in different genotypes in organic and free range egg production

Abstract / summary in English:

Organic and free range egg production is increasing. In these systems the same genotypes are kept as in cage or barn systems. Although organic and free range systems aim to increase animal welfare, they show feather pecking, smothering and a higher mortality because of predators. EU-project LowInputBreeds aims at improving performance, animal health, welfare and product quality in organic and free range systems.
