Farm Visit

Welcome to a typical Australian Chicken Farm!

This video gives you a glimpse of what it is like in a modern commercial chicken shed.  No meat chicken is ever raised in cages. The conventional farming method is illustrated in this film clip.  Chickens are kept in large barns where they live on a layer of bedding material spread out on the floor (e.g. saw dust, wood chips, rice hulls).  Free-range chickens are kept in the same type of sheds when they are young and at night, but have access to the outside during the day.  (To learn more about the different farming systems, click here.)

The clip is an extract from the secondary school DVD "From Hatchery to Home". To read about the school DVDs, click here.

It may take a few seconds for the video file to start downloading.
