The article features the poultry unit of Easton College in Norfolk, England. The unit was established in 1992. Except in time of very high biosecurity status, visitors to the college can visit the poultry unit, in accordance with strict hygiene rules. The biosecurity protocol of the college is similar to that used in the poultry industry. It requires all visitors to wear wellington boots and overalls provided by the unit and the use of antibacterial disinfectants are advised.
