We had to get our bio-security overalls + boot covers on, had a looks around, went in the sheds, stroked the chickens!
Had a look at the chain feeders, auto drinkers, nest boxes (astroturfed on a convayor belt!).
Everything is attached so that they can push a button and all the feeders, drinkers and nest boxes all raise up to the roof, the slatted boxes you can see down the middle are collapsed, and they can drive a mini quad/tractor in to push out all the dirty bedding!
Out of the shed and outside to the range:
Gots to ask questions, they use Flubenvet but she couldn't remember what it was called "Yes! thats it!" :P
They have a specialist poultry vet that flies around the UK in a helicopter he's so much in demand!!!
Got off the mini-bus and went straight down the hill to the theatre!
Did a tech run on the lights of Midsummer Nights Dream, then opened to the audience and did a run.
Went quite well, couple of dodgy things 'cos its a manual desk (with 48 sliders) and you can't programme cue's in like you normally would, and then just press Go.
