4 steps to optimise: 

Egg weight loss


'Pursue a minimum of 12% weight loss'

Having sufficient egg weight loss during the setting phase is crucial, as it creates an air chamber big enough for a chick to hatch successfully. We recommend pursuing a minimum of 12% egg weight loss in order to achieve superior chick quality.
