Hen keepers have a new guide. The booklet was produced jointly by the Asurewel project; a collaboration between the University of Bristol, the RSPCA and the Soil Association. The partnership offers a new practical scheme for the welfare of hens and will be part of a new assurance system.
The following measures have been identified by AssureWel as being important to assess for laying hens. The criteria to select these 'core' measures included consideration as to how practical they are to assess on-farm.
