Summary

The area of poultry houses for table birds on each production site must not exceed 400 m2.

Difference

French regulation limits the area of poultry house for table poultry whereas EU Regulation 2092/91 does not.

Justification

Limiting the size limits environmental pollution, noise and odour. It lowers the risks of sanitary problems. It is more acceptable for nearby residents.
