Voor het houden van deze kippen hebben wij ‘leaserechten’ nodig die wij elk jaar moeten kopen. Ook is het erg belangrijk ze gezond te houden door regelmatig het leefklimaat te checken, de dierenarts op bezoek te laten komen en verschillende inspecties te laten komen. Wij hanteren de criteria voor biologische kippen en eieren.

Keeping these hens require lease rights. which we have to buy each year. it is also very important to keep them healthy by maintaining the life environment of the chickens, hosting animal vets and performing the right inspections to the stable and the animals. We’re handling the the criteria according to SKAL-legislations for organic laying hens and eggs.
