Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success in this field by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements.​

Second Cycle VS Forced molting

Most utilized molting procedure is California molting (forced molting)-molting by feed and water deprivation. It is an old technique that is now being forbidden in many countries.

Security

 

is one major concern with California method. Risk of salmonella and other infections is big.

Animal well-being

 

Animals are stressed beyond their limits. Actually, the stress is the inducer of molting. This is the reason their immune system is affected and not able to battle potential infections.

Legal Issues

 

Forced molting is forbidden in many countries. With our molting method, we are giving you another option, that is safe and is performed with the regard of animal wellbeing.

Profit

 

is clearly on side of our method. Forced molting costs around 1-1,2 euros per hen. This calculation is based on feed consumption and late egg production. Using California method, farmer ends up with 7-20% of dead hens. Our method is comparable to technological mortality (0,3-2%). It depends on state of the farm, potential infestations.

How does the Second Cycle Service Procedure works?

 

After you send us details of your production, you have only two visits from our expert. First to give you feed and light program and second to administer the premix. After our service is performed, biology takes over. That way, we are essentially doubling laying hen exploitation period. Exact procedure is custom tailored according to your farm properties, but it looks like this:

DAY -22

Control weighing of the flock.Perform visual inspection of the henhouse and if necessary test for pathogens (lateral flow tests, PCR…).

DAY –21

Perform revaccinations for the IBV and WNV.

Modify your current feed formula.

Dosage depends of hen type (laying hen, heavy or light parents).

 

DAY 0

This is the day, the only day, we are adding the premix. Egg production decreases. And on day 6 it becomes 0.

 

DAY +7

Feeding formulation is now the same as before molting.

This is the only period without eggs.

There should be absolute 0 eggs in this period (8 days).

 

DAY +14

First eggs appear.

Feathers are starting to re-grow. 

 

DAY +40

Day +40Peak of production

(same as before).
