In Ovo combines animal welfare and efficiency by offering biotechnological solutions to the poultry industry. We currently focus on a long existing problem in hatcheries: The culling of one day old male chickens. Our solution, a gender screening in the first half of the breeding process, has several advantages. It prevents a lot of stress the chickens experience during the current manual gender sorting process, it reduces the energy consumption and CO2 emission of the hatchery and prevents the need to kill one day old chickens. This way, we make hatcheries more animal friendly and sustainable, and increase the efficiency at the same time.
