Just curious, what is it like at hatcheries? How do they count their chickens before they hatch. It seems odd to me that they can offer a curtain amount of chicks before hatching them. what happens if they cannot fill an order? What do they do with surplus chicks. Do they breed there own chickens, or buy eggs from wholesalers? I can't imagine all hatcheries breed their own cornish cross broilers. What are some other management practices that we just don't think about? just a few questions I have been hanging on to for a while. I'm sure every hatchery is different, but I'm interested to read about what you know.
