In a so-called Brief of Requirements an overview of the needs of laying hens and the requirements that the animals pose on their living conditions are given. This report addresses the in-depth literature study and the instructions for use. In the BoR of the laying hen 2020 the conditions for positive welfare are included for the first time. The BoR is a design tool to acknowledge and include the animal as an actor in the design process. The overview of needs and the derived requirements for which a poultry system has to comply make it possible to design for good animal welfare, in addition, the conditions for positive welfare promote opportunities for the animals to have positive emotions and experiences.
