Australian Eggs Research Project Conclusion: Effect of Lighting on Hen Ranging

Egg Research Project Updates

Free range eggs exist to meet consumer expectations about the way their eggs are farmed. But what if the chooks don’t want to meet consumer expectations? What determines whether chickens prefer to go outside, or hang around in the shed?

Since 2019, Anvil Media has produced an annual series of research project update videos for egg farmers. This is one of those videos.
