A Detailed Look at Early Feeding
Carla van der Pol, MSc.
Since HatchCare is such a novel system, many questions still exist as to how HatchCare chicks compare to traditional hatcher chicks. Also, much is unknown about when they start eating and drinking.
To gain more insight into how chicks behave in HatchCare, and how they develop, HatchTech Research observed HatchCare chicks and compared them to traditional hatcher chicks from the same 42 week old Ross 308 parent flock.
