  • Definition
  • This is a littered, covered area additional to the main shed. Popholes allow birds access to the wintergarden from the shed. It is covered with wire netting, so is airy and naturally lit. Sometimes this area is called a verandah. By providing wintergardens at an early age, birds are encouraged to range later on in life when they are housed in free-range systems. The wintergarden area is not normally included in the calculation of the official floor space available to the hens as they do not have access to it at night.
  • Context
  • If birds have plenty of foraging opportunities, the risk of feather pecking will be reduced. The provision of verandahs or wintergardens can encourage ranging during bad weather and may also facilitate birds to go outside in free-range systems.
