Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR HOUSING POULTRY
Abstract:
A poultry housing system (100) has a poultry fattening area (101), a heating system (103) for heating litter, and a conveyor system (105). The conveyor system (105) is adapted to support poultry and deliver fresh litter that has been heated by the heating system (103) to the poultry fattening area (101) and remove used litter from the poultry fattening area (101). A method for housing poultry includes accommodating poultry in the poultry fattening area (101). The method also includes heating litter to provide a pre-heated litter, feeding the pre-heated litter onto a conveyor belt (1), and delivering the pre-heated litter using the conveyor belt 1 to the poultry fattening area (101). The method further includes removing used litter from the poultry fattening area (101).
