Hy-Line UK recently hosted poultry industry representatives from the Netherlands, Russia and the Ukraine on a private tour of the company's award-winning TECNO colony system at Oaklands Farm in Shropshire, England.

The new system houses 80 birds in colony sections. The features include perches that allow birds to pass freely underneath, nest boxes at each end of the cage and specially designed hoppers with blowers to keep eggs free from dust or feathers.
