Animal welfare

 
 

According to the animal welfare rule 1999/74/CE from EU, Avicola Girbés S.A.T 6983 boasts of being one of the first poultry companies to have all sheds adapted to that rule.

Regarding laying-hens, its welfare consists of providing them with elements and space in order to behave as naturally as possible. In particular, we place some hangers for the hens to perch on, nailfiles for its claws, nests and sand baths to scratch. About space, sheds have grown from 550 cm2 to 750 cm2 per bird, allowing a wider place for them.
