PARENT STOCK FARMS
Our parent stock farms are located in Oinofita, Voiotia.
In 6 houses with a capacity of 10,000 hens/house, 60,000 ISA Brown laying hens lay eggs, which will then hatch into laying chicks. The hens are housed in a deep litter, not in battery cages, under ideal temperature and ventilation conditions. They are monitored daily by our veterinary team. Egg collection is carried out by automatic nests and eggs are transferred to the hatchery using specially converted vehicles.
Our hatchery is located in Oinofita, Voiotia.
Equipped with state of the art Petersime machines and fully automated, it has a hatching capacity of 24,000,000 eggs/year.
The eggs that are collected are inspected by the company's veterinarians and then are placed in incubators for 21 days. After the hatching process, our experienced staff carries out the necessary vaccination and quality control on the chicks. Chicks are then transferred via specialized climate-controlled trucks to the rearing houses.
During each incubation, monitoring and disinfections are carried out and strict hygiene standards are applied, guaranteeing the absence of pathogenic organisms and preventing contaminations.
Immediately after hatching, chicks are transferred to rearing houses, where they remain for 16 weeks. Our rearing farms are located in Oinofita (6 houses having a capacity of 60,000 chicks each) and in Alexandroupolis (2 houses of 75,000 chicks each).
Rearing is performed under the supervision of our experienced staff and the guidance of our veterinary team. We provide ideal conditions of ventilation, temperature as well as excellent feed quality, which we manufacture ourselves, in order to ensure the success of the rearing process.
