Free- Range egg production
EU egg legislation stipulates that for eggs to be termed ‘Free-Range’, hens must have continuous daytime access to runs which are mainly covered with vegetation and a maximum stocking density of 2,500 birds per hectare. Indoors, the maximum stocking density is 9 hens per square metre. Hens are provided with nest boxes and perches providing 15 centimetres of perch per hen. Litter must be provided, accounting for one-third of the floor surface. This is used for scratching and dust bathing.
The Lion Quality Code of Practice stipulates the same additional standards for Lion Quality Free-Range hens as for Lion Quality Barn hens. It also makes provision for:
- Outdoor shading and one pop-hole per 600 birds… open for 8 hours daily to allow access to the outside.
- Maximum flock size per house of 16,000 birds divided into colonies of 4,000.
- A maximum stocking density of 2,000 birds per hectare. The width and height of the pop-holes is greater than required by EU legislation.
