Sex determination in poultry embryos for the egg-laying industry. Increasing productivity and eliminating male culling!

Soos Technology

Every year 7.5 Billion male layer day-old-chicks are exterminated by the egg-production industry since they cannot lay eggs nor be used for meat production. Simply put, commercial hatcheries whose business is to produce female chickens that lay eggs are factories that throw away 50% of their production.

This practice has many ramifications ranging from unnecessary extermination costs, material waste of incubation space, electricity and water to major animal suffering and abuse. Soos’s purpose is to minimize the extent of male extermination and to increase the number of female layers from the same amount of incubated fertilized eggs.  

Our solution affects the genetic expression of the reproductive system in genetic male layer embryos, and is able to turn male layers into functional female layers that can lay eggs.  

We developed a software and a customized incubation cell that operate an incubation protocol responsible for the environmental conditions during the 21-day incubation period. Our protocol is a proprietary combination of temperature, humidity, CO2 Levels and sound vibration transmission.
