Evaluation Of Chick Quality

Which Method Do You Choose?

In practice, a good chick quality is crucial to optimize performance. As the growth rate of broilers as been increased over the years, the length of the production cycle is decreased. Chicks with a poor quality start slowly in the field. With the reduced length of the production cycle, it is more difficult to compensate for a slow start. Modern strains of both layers and broilers are selected for a high level of genetic potential and relatively small imbalances in chick quality can have a major impact on subsequent performance.
