The decision tree materials have been developed by the Ontario Poultry Industry. They have been designed to aid decision making regarding loading and transporting poultry.

Decision Tree

The Decision Tree is and 8.5″ x 11″ double sided document that provides information regarding which birds should not be loaded or transported


The handbook provides more detailed descriptions of all of the conditions found within the decision tree

The Poster is an 11″x 17″ single sided document which contains all of the same material as the decision tree but is meant to be hung up on a wall
