The embryonated eggs produced in our production farms are transported with strict hygiene measures to the incubation room. There the eggs are classified according to their size, those whose shell is suitable are selected and placed in modern incubators completely sanitized.

After the incubation process, eggs are mved to special rooms where the birth of chicks and hatching occurs. Once all the chicks are born and their down is dry, they are chosen one by one by expert hands responsible to control the quality and are installed in special boxes and in air-conditioned vans are moved to farms for fattening. In our incubation rooms 6 births per week are produced, which means more than 20 million chickens per year are born.
