Short summary
This paper shows the impact of the rearing system used for laying hens on their productivity and egg quality. Newly created laying hen hybrids dedicated to organic or pro-ecological farming were used. The results showed different reactions of two types of hens to extensive and intensive rearing systems. A significant positive impact of the extensive rearing system (access to open runs, natural length of daylight, farming fodders) on birds and their productivity was found.
