The real challenge is to maintain persistency while maximizing the number of saleable consumption or hatching eggs.

as well as feed conversion.
Along with the percentage of cracked eggs, the albumen quality also constitutes a major parameter.
MCTs provide about ten percent fewer calories than LCTs – 8.3 calories per gram for MCTs versus 9 calories
per gram for LCTs.
