To verify the benefits of using the external open air run on the conditions of organically raised chickens and hens, the European 'FreeBirds' project is now operational. It sees the CRPA (Italian Center for Animal Production Research) working with the University of Milan, Italian partner of the initiative.

‘FreeBirds’ was born as part of Core Organic Cofund, a cooperation project between 27 partners in 19 European countries and regions for scientific research in the areas of food and organic agriculture. It is funded by the European Union and the Italian Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies. Project coordination is entrusted to the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
