For instance at their layer farm in Northeastern Indiana, two million hens have been moved into enrichable cages, whereas seven cage-free houses on the farm are now housing 285,000 hens. They live in aviaries – for example, in the Big Dutchman best-seller Natura 60 for barn egg production.

Since cage-free birds require more labor and management time than cage-housed birds, Natura 60 suggested itself: The aviary was designed especially to reduce the management effort and at the same time, to increase efficiency in egg production.
