Title: FINAL HATCHING HOLDER FOR USE IN A METHOD OF INCUBATING HATCHING EGGS, AND ASSOCIATED METHOD
Abstract:
The invention relates to a final hatching holder for use in a method of hatching eggs. The method comprises the steps of providing a plurality of hatching eggs and placing said eggs in an incubator in a pre-hatching step. In a transport step, a number of fertilized eggs out of the plurality of hatching eggs are transported to a poultry farm. The method further comprises a preparatory step in which the number of fertilized eggs are placed in a final hatching holder. The final hatching holder is provided with air flow means which are designed to achieve convection through a natural flow of air along the plurality of hatching eggs. In a final hatching step, the final hatching holder with the number of fertilized eggs therein is placed in a stable of the poultry farm so that the number of fertilized hatching eggs are finally hatched.
