Today Eyes on Animals met with farmer David from GIJS Eggs. He is very open to our suggestion to catch their birds using the “EonA upright” method rather than upside down. Next April, when his hens will be caught and sent for slaughter we are invited to give a presentation and then together with their catchers will catch all the birds in this more humane way.
During our visit we also went to see his free-range farm. The hens looked really good and were very curious. The henhouse was well lit, had fresh air without dust. The hens had a lot of indoor and outdoor space. They could take sand baths, sunbathe and they had tree branches to perch and high grass to hide in.
