York Ag is an authorized U.S. distributor of PECKStone™, a unique enrichment tool designed specifically to prevent and reduce abnormal pecking behavior and improve animal welfare — superior to other poultry pecking blocks.
Pecking (or picking) is a common problem among domesticated chickens, turkeys, and other poultry. Birds will peck to forage for food, and they will peck one another to establish order or hierarchy or to relieve stress or boredom. Although it’s natural for chicken pecking to occur, it can lead to some very unnatural outcomes. Injury, mortality, and cannibalism are all possibilities as bully birds work to the top of the pecking order.
Even the best managed flock can suffer from persistent pecking. PECKStones are the easy, effective, and economical solution. Contact our team and let us collaborate on your poultry operation.
