This afternoon Eyes on Animals was asked by a large and progressive chicken- catching company to give an animal-welfare training course to their employees. The purpose was to educate their catchers on poultry behaviour, their sentience and physiology and how to catch birds keeping them upright instead of by their legs upside down. We also covered how to load the birds in the crates and containers in a way that does not have a high risk of causing injury or fear. The course was held in 2 languages so that everyone could follow the material and used a toy-chicken to demonstrate. We enjoyed giving this course as many people gave input and understood the purpose of what we were teaching. All in all a positive experience.
