Guidance
Application for broilers:

Start-stable:
1 Pick Block pr. 1000 poultries 
5 pcs. of Pick Blocks in a start-stable with 4800 poultries.

Growing-stable:
Pick Blocks can be moved with the poultries into the growing-stable after 3-4 weeks with a following continues supplementation. They can be moved with the poultries, however for the sake of biosecurity, we are recommending that you do not move used Pick Blocks backwards in the system for new groups of poultries. 

Hens, egg-layer:
1 Pick Block for 1000 hens
It is necessary to have the right amount of Pick Blocks in the stable and not too many. This is to ensure that it remains fresh, and that the hens maintain their interest in the Pick Block when the need arise. However, it is important to ensure that the Pick Block is placed properly, to make the block available for all hens in every corner. Hence, the arrangement of the stable plays an important role to ensure the availability. If you for instance have a section of 3000 hens, it may be optimum with 2 Pick Blocks in each side. 


Instructions:
As soon as you have put them into the stable, you must remove the Pick Block from the orange bowl, turn the bowl upside down and put the Pick Block onto the bowl once again. In this way, the poultry has full access to the Pick Block and it remains clean and attractive for a longer period. 

The poultries will normally use up the Pick Block over 3 weeks, from where the hens will have individually and shifting needs. At change of feed it is important that the hens do have access to the Pick Block. If you are experiencing a faster consumption, it may be because of a temporary increasing need. If you have any kinds of doubts and thought, please do not hesitate to contact your Staldren consultant.
