Aviagen® is pleased to announce the release of its latest brooding equipment checklist. This useful new tool helps customers create assets and monitor optimal brooding conditions to get chicks off to a good start.

The document offers an extensive list of equipment examples to successfully monitor the birds and their environment at placement, as well as the methodology for effectively using these devices. Following the list are practical recommendations in areas such as temperature, air speed, lighting, feeders, drinkers and feed form to create an optimal environment at placement.
