Avoiding a biosecurity hazard 

There is a high biosecurity risk for live embryos and hatchlings when condensation occurs on the eggs or cooling coils in the incubator. The incubation temperature together with moisture and fluff, create an ideal climate for bacteria to spread and contaminate eggs. These eggs have a high level of infection and many "bangers" at the end of incubation. This high bacterial pressure during incubation reduces day-old-chick quality and health, which leads to higher mortality at the broiler farm.
