Poults incubated at our farm

This week our farm has witnessed a significant long-awaited event, first poults have been incubated in our hatching floor.IMG 9059

The course of eggs took place on July, 1. More than 50 000 eggs were set in one setter (though its capacity is 82 944 eggs). Our professionals make all the necessary calculations beforehand about the quantity of eggs that need to be set under the regulations ROSS 308 to get the necessary number of poults.

The second course took place on July, 2.

So, on July, 23 at 6 a.m. we got first poults. As planned, there were about 50 000 of them. On July, 24 we got the poults from the second course of eggs. The total number of poults was 90 000, just like a chicken city! At 6 a.m. first poults pipped, and at 11 a.m. the process of selection was already completed to cede place to the process of washing all hatching floor premises involved in the technological process: setters, down facility, poults selection unit, macerator, poults shipping room, setter baskets and poults boxes washing modules, hatching wastes shipping room. It’s a painstaking work as the maternity for chickens must always be squeaky clean!8F4B899511

What is the path of a chicken egg at the poultry farm to a white happy chicken?

First an egg is heated for 5 hours to be incubated within 18.5 days after the setter is brought to the hatching regime. 18.5 days later a special handling machine transports all the eggs to the setter baskets which are then put into the setters for another three days. It is in these setters that poults finally pip. Female operators select the poults manually. Then the staff place them on the conveyor. Then a special calculating device puts every portion of 60 poults in a special box. The boxes are put into the transporting trolleys to be shipped on a special machine called poult-carrier. It brings the poults to the broiler breeding site.
