Stora Lunds Farm AB in Lundsbrunn outside Götene has chosen to invest in a completely new concept, which breeds "free range" chickens. With Free range means that it is something between a conventional and an organic chicken farm. What characterizes a free range chicken is that they unlike conventional chickens have a freer upbringing with the opportunity to use the outdoors. The chickens are kept longer in the stables, and are therefore a bit larger than conventional chickens. Four new farms have begun producing chickens and the first delivery was available in stores in the autumn of 2015.

During their first period in life the chickens need a lot of heat, and the stables start rooms have therefore been installed with Frico radiant heaters Aquaztrip. The radiant heater act as a "mother hen" and beneath the heater the little chickens lay tightly squeezed together to keep warm. After about three weeks, when the chickens have had time to grow up a bit more, they are moved to the next part of the room. There they have the opportunity to go out to a winter garden, a roofed area where the chickens can walk around. From the winter garden, they can then go out on a large lawn overlooking the open fields. 

In both the start room and the next part of the room Frico’s fan heater SWX-D, which is designed specifically for dusty environments, have been installed to ensure the most reliable plant as possible.
