Poultry to pantry by Raquel dos Santos
Transcript of Poultry to pantry by Raquel dos Santos
The hens that lay the eggs that we eat are called layers. They are cross bred to insure the maximum number of eggs are produced.
Soil is imported from approved countries to make fertile eggs in an approved quarantine facility, where they are monitored for disease. When the specially raised hens are old enough they are mated with roosters. This results in fertilized eggs.
What do they get fed?
One of the most important parts of yellow yolk and a hard shell is what the chickens get fed. Their diet includes a mixture of grain, wheat, limestone and added vitamins.
