Hennovation results: Alpacas, trolleys and pecking blocks

Hennovation partner Thea van Niekerk reported on a couple of interesting project results in Resource (article in Dutch):

Alpacas may protect free-range laying hens from birds of prey.

A custom-made trolley can substantially improve the welfare of spent laying hens.

Pecking blocks were tested in the Netherlands (cementblocks used for construction appeared best; see flyer).
