At HYZA we take a responsible approach to Animal Welfare. With animal welfare we not only present ourselves, but also behave like it. We also require compliance with the poultry welfare program from our partners, breeders and poultry suppliers, who are regularly inspected by our inspectors. Poultry from our farms experience well-being from the introduction of chicks into our heated farms, to the feeding of high quality feed composed of corn, wheat, a mix of minerals, antioxidants and vitamins, to gentle trapping. The chickens are stocked in smaller numbers, giving them more room to move around. Constant indoor temperature, indoor air conditioning, dry bedding and a steady supply of water and feed contribute to the excellent health of the chickens.
