Chick storage times can vary considerably, from just a couple of hours to an overnight stay. During storage, sub-optimal ambient conditions - even for relatively short periods - can negatively affect chick quality, post-hatch performance and animal welfare. The X-Streamer™ Chick-Store is specifically designed to automatically deliver the perfect chick holding environment, guaranteeing your valuable day-olds will retain outstanding quality and performance, and feel comfortable.
The X-Streamer™ Chick-Store is specifically designed to create an optimised environment inspired by nature, to ensure that chicks arrive at the farm in perfect condition.
1. Precise temperature control
Inside the X-Streamer™ Chick-Store, the temperature is controlled in a very precise way, creating the perfect, uniform ambient temperature for chick storage. In other words, the chicks are stored at the ideal temperature, which results in reduced mortality, better overall quality and outstanding performance in later life. At the same time, the completely controlled environment improves animal welfare, ensuring the well-being of the chicks.
2. Uniform airflow
Another critical factor in storage, besides temperature, is airflow. The X-Streamer™ Chick-Store distributes air evenly over the rows of chick box trolleys and chick boxes inside the machine. Excessive humidity and CO₂ are removed through the air outlets. These ideal environmental conditions result in the uniform airflow for every batch size of chicks to guarantee excellent development.
3. Fully adjusted lighting
The X-Streamer™ Chick-Store guarantees optimal lighting conditions. The soft illumination inside the machine has a calming effect on the new-born chicks, which helps them save precious energy. To prepare the chicks for dispatch, the lighting system enables a gradual change of the light intensity. This way, the chicks experience less stress when the doors are opened, as an abrupt change from a dark room to bright light is avoided.
This is why X-Streamer™ Chick-Store makes all the difference for you:
- Stronger, healthier chicks
- More flexible logistics
- Automated process with full traceability of storage parameters
- Space-saving, universal solution
