A practical guide to the signals of poultry and how they are used to interpret what actions to take to help bird health, nutrition and well-being.
Poultry Signals is a practical guide that shows you how to pick up the signals given by your animals at an early stage, how to interpret them and which action to take. It is now available in a special edition for Africa!
Not all poultry farmers maximise the full potential of their birds. This applies equally to laying hen farmers and broiler farmers on the African continent. For a good performance during the production period, the house has to be equipped and managed correctly and efficiently. But how do you know that what you are doing is right? Your chickens continuously send out signals: about their health, how well they know their way around their surroundings and whether they feel happy and comfortable.
Do you recognise the signals your chickens are giving? Do you know what to do if, for example, there are too many floor-laid eggs or if the chicks are spilling too much feed? Are you able to recognise the signals of heat stress? This is extremely important in Africa. And do you pay enough attention to biosecurity?
If you recognise the signs that point to potential problems, then make sure you are armed with information to take the appropriate steps to get your flock back on track.
