From the 18th day of the incubation process, eggs are transferred from the setter tray to the hatcher basket. The essence of this procedure is to avoid eggs cooling down or being damaged, which have a negative influence on hatchability. Therefore the transfer process needs to be both quick and gentle. With the current increase of daily production volumes, labour costs and bio-security risks, reliable automation is essential to do this efficient and safe.
The transfer room is the ideal place to collect pre-hatch management data. Our innovation Live Embryo Detection accurately
indicates which eggs contain a living embryo and classifies the non-viable eggs as infertile, early or late dead embryos. These figures are summarized per flock and can be used to predict hatching numbers and monitor the breeding and incubation performance. Exactly knowing the content of each egg, also enables selective processing during in-ovo vaccination, egg transfer and waste discharge.
