Poultry Farm / Poultry Resource Unit

The University of Connecticut Poultry Farm has been a feature of the UConn campus since the 1940's. Our main focus is raising breeder and egg laying poultry stocks. In 2005, we added a new building to our complex: the Poultry Resource Unit. This state-of- the-art facility reflects the high-tech operations that are the current industry standard and includes poultry housing as well as a hatchery. Together, the original structures and the new Poultry Resource Unit provide insight into the evolution of poultry management through the various penning, feed and water systems in use at the farm.
