Modern facilities to support the growing industry

We operate modern breeding and hatching facilities that deliver high volumes of quality products. These facilities are designed to exceed the high standards of biosecurity and traceability required by the U.S. poultry industry.

Our Pennsylvania hatchery, Pennovo, produces up to 500,000 high quality, commercial day-old female layer chicks per week, and our Brickland Hatchery in Virginia has a production capacity of up to 400,000 day-old female layer chicks per week.

Our newest hatchery, located in Grand Island, Nebraska, has the capacity to produce 24 million female day-old layer chicks per year and serves 10% of the US egg market. To supply the hatchery with the best quality hatching eggs, we are partnered with key contract parent stock growers located nearby. 

We are continually investing in our hatchery facilities, and in our day-old chick transportation trucks to provide the U.S. egg industry with the best quality day-old chicks. We know that a good quality day-old chick is at the basis of a prolific egg layer.
