Pas Reform’s Incubation Guides extend widely beyond simply providing instructions for the incubation of hatching eggs. They are based on ISO/HACCP requirements and include guidance on the deployment of practical hatchery procedures, from the arrival and quality control of the eggs to the placement of uniform day-old chicks.

The Incubation Guides are available in four editions, specifically dealing with best practice in broiler, layer, duck and turkey hatcheries. The guides are based on the latest available knowledge in the field of genetics and provide the tools to better match the needs of modern breeds. A series of new Hatchery Recording Forms has also been launched to support the use of procedures highlighted in Pas Reform’s Incubation Guides. These forms are especially useful for effective record-keeping in the hatchery and as such provide a valuable tool for monitoring and optimising hatchery results.

‘The new Incubation Guides and Hatchery Recording Forms summarise some crucial key aspects to keep in mind in daily hatchery practice’, says Martin Barten, Pas Reform’s Senior Hatchery Specialist. ‘They provide the hatchery manager and other responsible personnel with a complete manual for use in daily hatchery practice’. Copies of the new Incubation Guides and Hatchery recording forms are available by visiting the Library section of
