Revised Code of Practice

Revised Code of Practice for the Care of Hatching Eggs, Breeders, Chickens and Turkeys released

The revised Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Hatching Eggs, Breeders, Chickens, and Turkeys was released this week.

Canada's Codes of Practice are nationally developed guidelines for the care and handling of farm animals. They serve as the foundation for ensuring that farm animals are cared for using sound management and welfare practices that promote animal health and well-being. Codes are used as educational tools, reference materials for regulations, and the foundation for industry animal care assessment programs. NFACC's Code development process is a uniquely collaborative approach that ensures credibility and transparency through scientific rigour, stakeholder collaboration, and consistency. Updates to the poultry Code were led by a 15-person Code committee comprised of poultry farmers, animal welfare and enforcement representatives, researchers, hatcheries, transporters, processors, veterinarians, and government representatives. >> Learn More…
