pulled. Automated
equipment counts
the number of unhatched eggs in the
upper tray and using
this data to decide
how many chicks
need to be added to
the lower half of the tray to make
a full "box" of chicks for delivery.
Chicks can go from the hatcher to
the poultry house without being
touched.

Chick processing changes
Because of the two-tiered
basket, the chicks have already
separated themselves from the
unhatched eggs when the hatch is

Testing the impact of early feeding
When asked about the decision
to adopt this new early feeding
hatching system, Kempert said: "It
is all about improving the chick
quality. This system provides water,
feed and light from the moment the
chick hatches. It is a step forward for
animal welfare. This is completely
new, it is a step forward."
An integrated operation would
be able to reap any benefits of
early feeding when the layer or
broiler has completed its production cycle. An independent hatchery can charge more for chicks
or gain market share to be able to
cover the cost of feeding the chicks.
Kampert said the system is new
and Lagerwey was temporarily
charging customers the same price
for chicks that were hatched in the
new part of the hatchery and fed in
the hatcher as they were the other
chicks. Lagerwey is working with
its customers that are receiving
early fed chicks to do paired house
trials to see if they can capture the
expected performance benefits.
Commenting on how he thought
the early feeding system was
working at Lagerwey, Kampert
said, "The hatchability is very
good, perfect chick quality. It
brings a lot for animal welfare. We
as a company have very high expectations of this." ■
