“Pecking Pans provide a long-lasting environment enrichment which may reduce injurious pecking"
AFTER A 2 YEAR MSC STUDY AND 3-YEAR TRIALS, VENCOMATIC GROUP UK CAN NOW CONFIRM THAT THEIR LATEST INNOVATION HAS PROVEN WELFARE BENEFITS.
Working with the University of Bristol and combining the highest welfare standards, set by the RSPCA and Freedom Foods, Vencomatic Group UK have created the latest in poultry enrichment: The Pecking Pan.
The study, conducted by the University of Bristol and sponsored by Vencomatic, has found that “Pecking Pans for chicks/pullets can provide a long-lasting environment enrichment which may reduce injurious pecking, reduce plumage damage and enhance bird welfare” and therefore, is the only pecking enrichment shown to have welfare benefits*.
As stated by the RSPCA and Freedom Foods, for every 1000 birds, 2 items of enrichment are needed in each colony and therefore, the Pecking Pan is essential for any poultry farmer.
Available for both commercial and backyard farming, it is compatible with all systems, any type of bird, and can be used from rear right through the life of your birds. In addition, due to its versatility from floor placement to hanging, the Pecking Pan is easy to use, long-lasting and robust, and provides advancement in the future of welfare.
At Vencomatic, poultry welfare is our passion.
