Whether light breeding – growing pullets as layers in standard coops – or heavy breeding – raising pullets for meet, usually in dark coops with dedicated feeding systems, Yamko’s breeder coops utilize quality raw materials and are installed with advanced systems and meticulous finishes, enabling growers to enjoy efficient and reliable solutions.
Heavy breeding coops with males and females are installed with a unique system that enables feeding each of the sexes with the appropriate mixture. This system is based on varying density nets that prevent the males, with the bigger head, from reaching the food intended for the females, whereby they only eat from their dedicated plates.
The egg conveyors traversing the dark laying areas are planned and positioned in order to minimize the number of eggs left on the floor, thus greatly improving efficiency.
Lighting systems below the coop floor, enabling a precise dosage of lighting in the dark coops.
To prevent light penetration into the dark coops, the ventilation ducts are installed with dedicated dimmers that enable air circulation and control of light penetration.
There are two kinds of breeder integration: light breeding intended for D.O.C that will eventually grow into layers and heavy breeding intended to produce birds for the broiler industry. The growing stages are basically the same with differences in parent stock genetics.
The ideal model for constructing a light breeding farm is 3:1 breeding to pullet structures. For heavy breeding, the ideal model is 4:2 breeding to poultry coops.
This will enable a more balanced production of fertilized eggs for the hatchery.
Males and females are grown separately at the rearing stage for a period of 15 weeks for light pullets and 22 weeks for heavy pullets. Afterward, the fertilized egg production stage continues until 64-65 weeks with hatchability of 240-250 eggs/period for light layers and 150-165 eggs/period for heavy layers.
The fertilized eggs are transferred to the hatchery for 21 days (setting and hatching periods), providing DOC’s to the market.
