How to limit the impact of non-debeaking on animal welfare in parent stock?  In a few weeks Roxell will participate on the webinar of Poultry World regarding the impact of beak treatments and animal welfare regulations on the performance of broiler breeders.

What is the best way forward with stopping the invasive procedure, without resulting in feather peaking or even cannibalism.

Birds are ‘equipped’ by mother nature with a formidable set of weapons. With toes and especially beaks they are able to cause each other quite some harm, especially in modern animal husbandry systems. That is why beak trimming, became a standard operating procedure, with the hot blade and later via infrared treatment directly after hatch.

However, with stricter legislation concerning animal welfare, alternatives to beak trimming have been under investigation.

wageningenSenior researcher of Wageningen University, Ingrid de Jong will share her experiences from studying several trails with non-debeaked breeders and will explain the possibilities to prevent birds from starting the peak at each other. Furthermore she will give insights in what to do if the birds start peaking. What management tools are at hand.
