Method of estimation of selected hens welfare elements in an alternative maintenance system
Summary.

Broody hens welfare in an alternative maintenance system was the focus of the undertaken attempt. Both behavioural and health aspects, as well as numerous physiological indicators are taken into consideration while applying animal welfare estimation methods. The described evaluation complies with the EU recommendations for the applied spot method TG-200. It serves to evaluate the conformity of both buildings and technology of breeding with the requirements of regulations and those defined in the process of the carried out hens research. The following functional areas were focused on while assessing the welfare: terms of mobility, feed intake, herding behaviour, resting conditions, comfort of living, nesting conditions, herd health and care.

Key words: hens, welfare, pecking, feed intake, nesting, herd hygiene, egg hatching
