The HatchTech HatchTraveller Chick Transport System is a hybrid, battery-driven trailer for day-old chicks. The system allows the user to transport up to 183,600 chicks in one single journey. By providing the optimum level of light and fresh air on chick level during transport, the trailer maintains optimal early-life developmental conditions between hatchery and poultry house. In addition to its core transportation function, HatchTraveller also serves as a mains-powered storage facility for chicks as they await transport, eliminating the need for a separate storage room.
HatchTraveller’s key feature is an innovative climate-control system based on HatchTech’s laminar airflow technology and patented perforated radiators. By maintaining a uniform climate inside the trailer, the technology ensures the body temperature of each chick remains constant at 104°F (40.3°C) for the duration of the journey.
