UK - One of Europe’s largest independent hatcheries, P.D. Hook (Hatcheries) Ltd, has recently expanded its hatchery unit in Great Yarmouth (UK) with an extra setting capacity of 24 million eggs per year.

The company, headquartered in Cote (Oxfordshire, UK), ordered 12 BioStreamer™ 24S setters and 6 BioStreamer™ 8H hatchers, which were installed and commissioned in January 2013. The expansion will bring the total hatching capacity of P.D. Hook at over 6.5 million chicks per week.

The Great Yarmouth hatchery was already successfully running on Petersime Conventional and AirStreamer™ incubators, and therefore the choice for Petersime’s most recent and advanced model, the BioStreamer™, was obvious.

Mr David Dunn, Hatchery Manager of the Great Yarmouth hatchery, explained: "Our mission is to supply our customers with chicks of the highest quality. Using advanced incubation equipment, together with strict biosecurity standards, control procedures, and modern production lines, is key to ensuring this."
