Abstract:
A system, egg holding unit and methods are provided for non-invasively determining the fertility of an avian egg. The system comprises: an egg holding unit; at least one transmitter, operative for transmitting electromagnetic waves towards said at least one egg; at least one receiver for receiving a received signal, including at least a portion of said electromagnetic waves after passing through said at least one egg placed within said egg holding unit; a processor adapted to analyze said received signal according to a predetermined fertility determination procedure; and a communication interface for providing a fertility indication with respect to each one of said at least one egg. Preferably, the communication interface is coupled to a display device adapted to show fertilization data using a GUI, to one or more end users.
