Perches—Perches provide a significant improvement to the growing and laying house environment. In grow, they allow birds to fully develop their leg and flight muscles. Perches in the growing house will habituate jumping behavior which will be important in good nesting behavior. Perches reduce the social stress of the floor by providing safe resting sites. Perches reduce the social pressure in the environment by increasing the space in the house. Piling is a common problem in flocks without access to perches. Place perches on slats where possible to maintain good litter conditions. Distance between perches on A-frame design should be 40 cm (16 in) and at a slope of 45 degree. The length of the perch depends on the bird density (as shown in the table below).
