Poultry Farm and 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 White Leghorn breeder and egg laying poultry stocks. In 2005, the Poultry Resource Unit was added to the complex. 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. These facilities are also utilized for research projects.
