The modern poultry systems for barn egg production and free range egg production. With the four different models NATURA-Nova, NATURA-Nova Twin, NATURA-Step and NATURA-Colony we have the appropriate solution for every poultry house, whilst also facilitating economical and simultaneously animal and user-friendly egg production.

NATURA-Nova is an aviary system that has proved itself for many years in the field and was designed by Big Dutchman. All versions of the NATURA-Nova series are characterised by the connection between the nest and the aviary itself. This construction has the following advantages:

  • The hens can easily reach the nest –> nest acceptance of up to 99 %;
  • Acclimatisation by the pullets post housing is rapid –> feed and water are within easy reach;
  • Farm staff can use the raised inspection aisle for daily checking of the birds –> very clear arrangement;
  • 100 % of the house surface is utilised as scratch area–> freedom of movement for the hens and optimum stocking density;
  • The connection aisle can be equipped either with plastic slats or bottom wire.
