Hatcher Basket Hygiene for a Clean Start

The hygiene status of the environment into which chicks are hatched has a direct impact on day-old-chick quality and first week mortality. The first environment encountered by the chicks is the hatcher basket and its contents. Hatcher baskets are used intensively, often twice a week. Keeping them scrupulously clean between cycles will pay dividends. Weak

Storage of Hatching Eggs! Maintaining Quality

Egg storage is the time between oviposition (laying) and the start of the incubation process for hatching eggs. Optimal hatching results and chick quality can be achieved if eggs are set after an initial adaptation period of about 1 to 2 day(s). This allows carbon dioxide to be released from the egg, which increases albumen

Managing Fertility: Good breeding Practices

The percentage of fertile eggs is one of the most important parameters influencing the economic performance of a breeder flock. An embryo can of course only develop from a fertile egg. Fertilization takes place – and thus can only be influenced on - the breeder farm. When we consider fertility, we usually think of the

Hatching Egg Quality

Hatchability and chick data are the most important references for optimizing incubation management. The age of the flock, number of storage days and incubation program are typically included in the analysis and optimization of hatchery results, but very often, insufficient attention is paid to the quality of the hatching eggs. While external quality is usually
