Different factors such as genetics, breeder management, flock age, storage time, egg age, egg size, shell porosity, etc. make each batch of hatching eggs truly unique. Despite this, traditional incubation systems still use intermediate incubation parameters for ventilation rates, air temperature and air humidity to manage the incubation process. Embryo-Response Incubation™ goes much further. By online diagnosis of the real embryo temperature, actual CO₂ output, egg weight loss, etc. the system constantly and interactively adapts the incubation parameters to create the optimal environment for each specific batch of eggs. The Embryo-Response Incubation™ technologies mimic how a mother hen listens and responds to the signals of the embryos. By letting the embryos decide which incubation environment is best for them, Embryo-Response Incubation™ technologies optimize chick quality, hatchability and post-hatch performance. At the same time, they safeguard the welfare of the chicks.
