Hen ranging behaviour in relation to UV light

    Hen ranging behaviour in relation to UV light

    FreeRange 9

    This project is investigating UV light and light intensity and its effects on ranging behaviour of free range hens. This project will determine whether hens prefer or avoid high levels of UV or light intensity, how ranging behaviour is affected, and will better inform shade requirements.

    Watch the interview with the researcher to find out more about this project.
