about nestborn

 

NestBorn is a new revolutionary on-farm hatching concept with focus on broiler welfare and sustainability. Without need for specific installations or investments in the broiler house, pre-hatched eggs are gently placed in a natural litter bed. A unique “real-time” monitoring platform of the egg shell temperature in the broiler house allows that farmer and hatchery can team up in order to create optimal broiler house conditions and optimal performance of the hatching process. The result are robust chicks which hatched from the eggs in natural & stress-free conditions and which have direct access to feed and water.
