Three members of the team recently visited the West Country Layers Association and provided lectures and training for a Duchy College course in feather pecking and adverse behaviour in poultry. 

Sarah Lambton gave a lecture on the underlying causes of injurious pecking, and the management strategies which may address these, while Claire Weeks gave a lecture on management strategies designed to increase range use. Paula Baker and Sarah Lambton also gave a demonstration of feather scoring, and explained how it can help to manage injurious pecking, by increasing awareness of the problem.
