Optimal Weight Loss Profiling during Incubation

Good hatchability is dependent on meeting all crucial incubation parameters. One of these important parameters is weight loss. Eggs should lose 11-13 per cent of initial weight during the first 18 days of incubation. Weight loss in hatching eggs is caused by the continuous evaporation of water from the eggs - and inseparably linked to

Managing Incubation Temperature to Combat Increased Early Mortality

As a breeder flock ages, the number of ‘clear’ (infertile) eggs increases as a result of decreased fertility and increased early mortality. Consequently, with higher numbers of clear eggs, a higher proportion of the heat produced by developing embryos in the fertile eggs is absorbed by the ‘cold’ clear eggs placed around them. Embryonic temperature

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

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
