The majority of the chicken we sell in our stores comes from Red Tractor Assured British indoor farming systems. British indoor chickens live in safe and comfortable barns, with a range of enrichment materials that enable the animals to display natural behaviours.
The enrichment within British indoor farms include:
- Pecking objects
- Perching bales – typically straw or shavings
- Natural light – delivered by windows installed in the barns
The birds are checked regularly throughout the day by trained stock people, allowing elements such as the temperature, air quality, litter quality, water, feed levels and overall welfare of the bird to be monitored closely.
