Sustainable chicken takes flight
Windstreek presents a major leap forward from existing farming systems. This is achieved through the application of natural principles in ventilation and air filtration, through extra space for natural chick behaviour, through maximum transparency for the public and through agreeable working conditions for the farmer. All this in an economically competitive set-up, even when utilisation rates are relatively low and organic broilers grow slowly.

Technical innovations
The open facade lets the chicks experience a pleasant sense of open space and provides the public with a view into the barn. Windbreak mesh keeps out birds and other animals that might carry disease. When the weather is bad, there is the protection of curtains. The concave shape of the roof provides a natural system of air circulation. At the low end, outside air is drawn in via an earthen wall and adjustable openings. At the high end, the outgoing air is filtered by the row of trees. The brooding hood is a unique feature of Windstreek. It provides shelter to the chicks in their first weeks. With only a little additional heating at the initial stage, the shape of the brooding hood makes it possible to use the chicks’ own body heat to retain a comfortable temperature and at the same time ensures an ample supply of fresh air. With the automatic controlled microclimate the energy usage compared with traditional houses can be reduced up to 80%. Another unique feature is that the feeding-, drinking- and light systems are integrated in the brooder hood. This guarantees direct access to all elementary requirements of the day old chicks. The brooder simulates the natural behaviour under the wings of a mother hen. The broilers can leave the brooder to discover their new world and move to their own comfort zone.

Resume
Integral sustainability means that considerations of animal welfare are equally important as the environmental health and landscape integration. The integration of all these is what makes Windstreek unique
