Perching

Provision of perches for daytime use allows resting birds and subordinate birds to separate themselves from active or aggressive birds, respectively. Provision of perches for daytime use can therefore help to reduce feather loss from injurious pecking.

At night, hens are motivated to seek high roosting spots and will do so when given the opportunity. To allow all birds to roost at night, a minimum of 8cm raised perch provision per bird is necessary. Birds provided with this level of provision have been shown to have reduced stress, reduced fearfulness and improved body condition.
