These modern poultry systems for barn egg production and free range egg production are exceptional due to their high production reliability and ease of layer management. Their innovative design has many advantages.
NATURA 70 aviary systems for efficient alternative egg production

NATURA70 are two types of aviaries for layers. The design concept is based on the idea to reduce the management effort and at the same time increase reliable and efficient production.

Both systems provide the following advantages:

  • the aviary remains locked during the familiarisation phase
    –> simplified access to feed and water
    –> good start into the laying phase
    –> minimised number of slat and floor eggs
  • "stairways" provide access for the hens to the different levels, throughout the aviary;
  • the hens reach the scratching area through large openings along the entire length of the system;
  • manageable group sizes thanks to partitions that are installed every 2.41 m;
  • gentler egg transportation as the longitudinal egg belts are located on one level only;
  • simplified collection of system eggs;
  • perfect access to the entire system due to easily operated folding grill;
  • every row is completely functional; it is possible to install a system with only one row in the house.
