Hatchery Planning, Design, and Construction

  • Chapter

Abstract

A hatchery is not a typical industrial building; it is highly specialized with unique requirements for construction and operation. In reviewing the literature for this chapter, a very recent document was discovered that covers practically all the main concerns for building a modern hatchery. The document, Designing the Ultimate Hatchery, was prepared as a joint effort by Chick Master Incubator Company 1 and Hatchery Planning Company,2 companies that are involved in the planning, design, and day-to-day operation of poultry hatcheries. It provides an excellent description of the most important concerns beginning with the planning phase and continues through design, construction, and operation of the modern hatchery. An edited version of this document is presented here.
