Great information about chickens' instinctive behaviors and the advantages and disadvantages of various means of caring for them. I learned a lot about the various systems used throughout the world.
I learned so much. I am a hobby farmer with a small flock, but I really enjoyed learning about all aspects of chicken welfare as it pertains to both small and large scale operations. Thank you!

Interesting and in depth, though I take one star off as I can't shake the feeling that week 5 is almost entirely propaganda paid off by large scale poultry farms.
Free range is entirely more humane, birds need sunshine, fresh air, grass, and dirt. That isn't to say free range is completely humane, as NO commercial poultry farm will ever be humane.

I enjoyed this course thank you. As a suggested improvement for future courses; access to transcripts for all videos would be a great learning aid. I would be very interested in participating in a similar course focusing on Broiler Behaviour and Welfare - from hatchery to slaughter. Thanks again. Kind regards. Paul Morrell

I really enjoyed the course. I hope to see more animal specific behaviour and welfare courses in the future.
This course mostly covered parts of the poultry industry, I would have enjoyed it even more if non commercial farming was included, like chickens at home or at the children's farm.

Honestly, I am absolutely delighted to have access to that course. Information is reliable, strong, you can have access to a huge number of articles, studies... It is well structured. My only regret, is that there is a lack of actual images of the actions and the process described.

Great content. Personally would have preferred the content to be more geared towards backyard breeders but overall good balance on welfare topics vs caring for chickens at home. Could be a little bit more technical/detailed & challenging.
By Noah B•
The content was of the course was exceptional and easy to follow. Despite my hectic work schedules, the presentation of the course made it easy to pick up where I left off and enabled me to complete this amazing course. Many thanks.

The individual lectures are kept short and the exams at the end of the week felt "fair".
The course itself is very informative and comprehensive . I learned a lot and I feel somehow ok prepared to keep a few backyard chicken :)

Generally pretty well put together. There were more then a few times some of the videos probably should have been combined into one, so as to be less cluttered. Otherwise overall a pretty pleasant experience.
By Melissa L•
Informative. However sometimes it was hard to hear the lecture over the chicks. I would have also liked a bit more photos or videos of what was being talked about instead of a video of the lecturer
By Munafahemad K S•
Excellent. Very Informative course. from Poultry Welfare point of view. It would have been richer if various processes, equipment were included for demonstration along with the lecture videos.
By Caroline C•
There is some super helpful information in this course, at times it was difficult to maintain concentration with the background noise of the chickens and a monotone speach delivery.

The course is fun with valuable content but it needs more illustrations, Talks about behaviors in general but would be desirable if there is more expansion in commercial farms.
By Pritom D•
On the video section,the process should be shown by technically.It was just about telling the processes.But if the process was shown on the video,it would be more effecient.
By Thirza v K•
I love chickens and i'm very happy to know a bit more about the process. I also admire how objective this course handles the subjects, even if they are ethically sensitive.
By Laura E C C•
Is great that have courses in the plataform, that explaine and introduced all kind of people with the food production, and people understand the process with science basis
By Nina T•
Interesting course that covers all kinds of aspects related to keeping chickens. The lectures are clear, and supplementary articles are provided for those interested.
By Rey W•
Quality information & supplemental info provided! I own chickens and am very interested in animal welfare and I love edinborough's welfare courses.
By Linda P•
I have learned a lot more about the behaviour and welfare of chickens. Highly recommended for anyone who keeps a few or lots of chickens.
By Maria S S C•
Very nice introductory course! I would like another that goes more deeply into anatomy, physiology and pathology in production chickens.
By JOSEFINA D B•
I learned a lot about chickens. As an improvement, I suggest that it could include information about chicken disease and parasites.
By Maksuda A M•
It was a very educative course. Now, I know many new information about Chicken behaviour & welfare, what I haven’t known before.
By Hector L J•
There should be more images videos of concepts explained in lecture videos, e.g. welfare problems, stress
By Kirsty W•
Can be taken by anyone with an interest in chickens! Good references and interesting variety of topics!
By Edie L•
Fascinating general information on commercial and backyard chicken welfare and behavior course.
Quiz in French please
More information on organic breeding would be better..
