Feather loss benchmarking tool

Benchmarking tool for Feather loss

Following a feather loss assessment using the AssureWel protocol enter the flock age and total figures for score 0, 1 and 2 for the two assessment areas head/neck and back/vent in the boxes below.

By clicking 'Plot Graph' you will then see a cross appear on the graphs indicating the percentage of affected birds for that feather loss score at the specified flock age. This cross demonstrates how your scores compare to pooled data collected from barn, free-range and organic flocks at Freedom Food assessments, RSPCA monitoring visits and Soil Association inspections. The graphs are updated annually to show the latest data.

Depending on where your cross falls, follow the corresponding Red, Amber, or Green link below to further explore what your score means and what action should be taken.
