Pullet Rearing

JSR Services (Blairgowrie) Ltd has pullet rearing farms located in 4 different Scottish locations – Blairgowrie, Forfar, Stirling and Ayr.

JSR Services (Blairgowrie) Ltd rear all breeds of hen from day old to point of lay (16.5 weeks), for the whole of Scotland and Northern England.  We can customize lighting programme’s for each customer and can offer a range of different enhancements for birds at our customers request.  JSR Services carry stock on site of such enhancements like pecking blocks, Lucerne bails and various activity stimulation toys.

All our rearing farms have custom made highest welfare step-rearing facilities to give the pullets the best start no matter what type of hen house they are going to.  Birds reared on this system have been proven to house well onto the larger multi tier type free range systems as well as conventional flat deck.  We have pan and chain feeding systems in all our rearing sheds so birds will settle in to any new surroundings with a minimum of stress.  Keeping stress to a minimum for the pullets is key to them settling and performing quickly at their new homes.  This was a top priority when all our rearing farms were carefully selected so we can move birds anywhere in Scotland and the North of England within 6hrs of the first birds being loaded.  This not only means we can offer the highest degree of bird welfare but also keep the business as cost efficient as possible which reflects in the price of the pullets.  The sites we operate are also all within 100 miles of our head office.   Because of this the directors can visit each of our site individually to monitor the birds throughout the rearing process.

Our spread of shed sizes range from 8,000 birds per rear to maximum of 32,000 per rear. And over a 12 month period has the capacity to produce 800,000, 16 week old birds, for the Scottish Free Range and organic industry. All JSR Services rearing farms are RSPCA and freedom foods and BEIC registered and are fitted out with the highest welfare layouts to allow the day old chicks to grow and develop in a stress free friendly environment. Out of a total rearing capacity more than 50% is allocated to part organically reared birds and because of our integrated family transport system allows us to deliver consignments from as little as 100 birds to larger commercial assignments.

Our customers are very loyal to us and have been with us for many years; but we also welcome orders from new customers “no order is too big or small”. To take advantage of our services orders must be placed at least 20 weeks prior to when the point of Lay pullet is required to allow us the necessary time to allocate the order to the best possible site.  Considerable planning and consideration goes into each independent order no matter what size.
