NETHERLANDS - The RearMaxx rearing system from Jansen Poultry Equipment features closeable compartments that make catching and vaccinating easier and ensure a controlled rearing process.

Young hens in RearMaxx system with closed compartments

Older hens get proper training in jumping and flying. The compartments are open.

When the young hens are a few weeks old, the compartments will be opened which allow the hens to move through the entire system. New central winchable doors make opening of these doors very easy.

Labour saving

The doors of each compartment are easy to open from one central location by a manual winch. Each floor can be operated separately. This makes it possible to release animals from the different tiers separately.

Controlled rearing process

Between the 4th and 6th week of age the compartments of the first tier will be opened. A few days later, the compartments of the second tier will open. The doors from the third tier can be opened around 8 weeks of age, depending on the development of the bird and type of layer. The young hens need to be strong enough to learn how to jump and fly. When the doors are being opened, also the perches in front of the system are raised up. In this way the hens learn how to move between the different tiers.

Efficient rearing process

With the RearMaxx rearing system young hens learn how to move between different tiers and get proper training in jumping and flying. Something they need to be able to do daily in an aviary system. A high bird density is possible because the system exists out of tiers. The new central winchable doors make the rearing system easy to operate.
