Together with World Animal Protection in Toronto, Canada, we hosted a successful Chicken Catching Webinar. 62 stakeholders from the Canadian poultry industry attended, from major slaughterhouses to major egg companies and even national supermarkets and Canadian government inspectors ! Eyes on Animals gave a talk about the new gentle method of chicken catching which we developed and are successfully spreading in the Netherlands. Two Dutch laying hen farmers that gave up the old-fashioned rough method of catching hens and instead adopted the EonA method a few years ago also gave a talk at the webinar about why they made the switch and how pleased they are now that they did. It was terrific to hear Dutch egg producers speaking so highly about the cooperative work and so highly about the benefits to chicken welfare. Watch the entire seminar (75 minutes).
