Mandatory requirements for the keeping of Pekin ducks exist neither in Europe nor in Germany. The medium water is of high importance for ducks and is connected with many species-specific behaviours. In commercial fattening establishments the animals are provided drinking water solely by nipple drinkers because up to today, the economic and hygienic aspects of this drinking suppIy are beyong dispute. The aim of the study was to examine the influence of the round drinker AquaDuc T® on animal…

Antioxidant Defence Systems and Oxidative Stress in Poultry Biology: An Update
This new direction in improving antioxidant defences for poultry in stress conditions is related to an opportunity to activate a range of vitagenes via Nrf2-related mechanisms to maximise internal AO protection and redox balance maintenance.


Poultry farm hygiene: microbiological quality assessment of drinking water used in layer chickens managed under the battery cage and deep litter systems at three poultry farms in southwestern Nigeria.
Water troughs from deep litter and caged chicken water troughs (drinkers) fixed to each of the different 3-tier cages containing layer chickens in Farms A, B and C were subjected to a 7-day study of poultry farm hygiene, suggesting that the flock of birds and the consumers of the eggs and meat from the chickens are at risk of bacterial infection unless strict farm hygiene is ensured through regular monitoring.
Epidemiological associations between characteristics of registered broiler chicken flocks in Canada and the Salmonella culture status of floor litter and drinking water.
A Canada-wide flock management survey of 294 randomly selected commercial broiler chicken flocks was conducted during 1989-1990 and no significant associations were found between pest control, restrictions on visitors, clean-out methods, or water sanitization and the culture of salmonellae from floor litter or drinking water.
Empfehlungen zur Beurteilung der hygienischen Qualität von Tränkwasser für Lebensmittel liefernde Tiere unter Berücksichtigung der gegebenen rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen
To provide drinking water in sufficient amounts and with appropriate quality is - in addition to an adequate supply of energy and essential nutrients by feed - a decisive precondition for maintaining
Analysis of risk factors for Campylobacter species infection in broiler flocks.
German broiler flock samples from May 2004 to April 2005 found no evidence of an effect of slaughter age, time interval between successive flocks, hygiene measures, number of broiler houses on a farm, partial slaughter, source of water supply, and number of farm employees on the Campylobacter infection rate.
Verhalten als ein Indikator des Wohlbefindens beim Einsatz der AquaDuc T® Rundtränke bei Pekingmastenten unter Feldbedingungen
Findings show that Pekin ducks clearly favor the round bell drinkers over the nipple drinkers, and the round drinkers offer the ducks very good conditions for an animal-friendly water supply.
