On the first postnatal day, the chicks are moved into specially equipped rearing houses. A characteristic of Rearing Phase 1 is the heat requirement of the chicks. That is why the temperature is 35 °C during the first days of life. After the fifth week, the young turkeys are moved into the growing houses.
Transparency is of great importance to HEIDEMARK. That is why we have equipped numerous houses with cameras providing our customers and consumers with a direct picture of the husbandry conditions. Visitors to our website are able to observe the animals around the clock in the house and in the outdoor climate area.
Our cameras cover all four rearing phases of the Heidemark turkeys. Due to the use of infrared cameras it is possible that pictures are shown in black and white as well as in colour. This is attributable to the light sensitivity of the cameras.
