Feeding, winter garden

Automated distribution of grains in the winter garden

An additional feeding device is an automated grain dirstributor, that is available as a stationary system or on guide rails. The mobile systems can be operated with timers. The offered grain or legume feed must be accounted for in the total feeding ration. Hereby the hens are offered a species-specific foraging possibility and occupation and can prevent behavioural disorders such as feather pecking.
Of course it is possible to distribute the grains by hand. In doing so a simultaneous supervision of the birds is feasible.
(Shell-)lime should be provided in an extra trough for the  promotion of egg shell quality.
