RED-L is the abbreviation of Resting, Eating, Drinking and Laying. The system design integrates these basic needs in a unique porch structure. Hens have full freedom and easily move from one level to another as they would do in a tree following their natural instincts. The RED-L contains a large living surface within the system and a 100% availability of floor space. With its many tiers and open structure the RED-L offers:
- full freedom for birds;
- water, feed, nests and perches on multiple levels;
- a maximum number of birds per house;
- easy access on all sides and levels for the poultry manager.
The integration of Vencomatic nests on several tiers minimises the number of eggs laid outside the nest. Furthermore, the possibility to close off the scratching area upon arrival of the hens facilitates training and familiarization to their new surroundings. This leads to even better results and an easy to manage flock.
