Viscon Hatchery Automation

Early Feeding

Improve animal wellfare

Early feeding concepts have gained significant traction in the poultry industry in an effort to improve production efficiencies and animal welfare.

As pioneers in this industry, Viscon has played a significant role in the development of automation solutions to minimise chick handling and reduce stress in the hatchery or on the farm, which contributes to the enhanced performance of our customers across 5 continents.

Hatch with feed, fresh water & light

HatchCare

With HatchCare, chicks hatch under optimum and uniform temperature conditions, and are provided with light, feed and water as soon as they hatch. This unique combination of features not only delivers stronger, healthier chicks; it is also a significant step towards more animal-friendly, antibiotic-free poultry production.

NestBorn

NestBorn is a revolutionary on-farm hatching concept that significantly improves the level of welfare and health of broilers. With NestBorn, no investments or modifications are needed in the poultry house. The hatchery brings and places the pre-incubated eggs directly on a natural litter bed in the broiler house, using the sophisticated NestBorn egg placing machine. NestBorn offers limitless opportunities for creating added value.
