The Benefits of Single- Stage Incubation to Food Safety

Typically, papers on single-stage incubation focus on the benefits of all-in-all-out incubator management from the points of hatchability (number of chicks) and uniformity (chick quality). Much less is written about the positive impact of single-stage incubation management on hatchery hygiene. Yet when food safety is such a pivotal issue for the modern hatchery, from tracking

Secondly, in the practice of the hatchery fertility is often based on candling, whereby all clear
