Aggressive, abnormal pecking behavior is a common and serious welfare and economic threat to poultry farming.

PECKStone™ poultry blocks can help decrease this harmful behavior, thus increasing poultry productivity!

Newer housing systems in poultry farming may increase feather pecking, incidences of skeletal injuries, and mortality1,2–one of the key current issues in the poultry industry.

  • 55-80% of producers report signs of feather pecking—many want to know how to stop feather pecking in chickens
  • Preventing poultry behavioral disorders is ideal
  • Once abnormal pecking starts, it’s very difficult to stop
  • It is critical to diagnose and intervene immediately to prevent feather pecking and cannibalism in chickens
This is one of the major current and future challenges of the poultry industry.

Environmental enrichment with poultry supplies and equipment can help:

  • Satisfy birds’ extremely strong desire to forage, scratch, and peck.
  • Minimize undesirable, harmful behavior, including aggression, feather pecking, cannibalism, flightiness, and distress.
  • Enhance animal welfare.

National and global poultry organizations have developed guidelines for poultry management that are increasingly focused on animal welfare and enrichment.
