Cobb Española is investing $5 million in expanding hatchery and farm output.


The newly opened hatchery at Dueñas in northern Spain has a capacity of more than five million breeder chicks per year and has been designed to allow for expansion to double this number. It has 24 single-stage, two-section setters and eight hatchers with stainless steel internal walls, and the latest energy-saving features including full heat recovery, according to Cobb.
