A chick's first 24 hours in the production house

01 February 2019

The AviagenĀ® poster 'The First 24 Hours' offers a useful checklist of things to prepare, consider and monitor when you take delivery of chicks for your production house.

There is something in this downloadable poster for every producer.

Use it to ensure that you are preparing your houses with the correct biosecurity, temperature and ventilation for the chicks arrival. Ensure that your chicks are given thorough welfare checks on arrival and that they get the best start in your house by having the right crop fill levels and are exhibiting the expected behaviour.
