Hens Respond To Classics

Farming officials said they believe listening to radio station Classic FM helps birds relax and increase the number of eggs they lay.

Gloucester farmer Charles Bourns, Poultry Board Chairman of the National Farmers Union said he saw a huge rise in production after playing classical music to his chickens.

"I have tried pop music, but it is too changeable, with lots of talking - the birds prefer Classic FM, much to my children's disgust", he told Farmer's Weekly magazine.

He plays classical music 24 hours a day to his birds and as well as increasing productivity he believes helps the birds growth rate.
