  8. 8. C-Filtering Recycled Airfrom Hatcher  Microorganism from hatching eggsand hatchery debris  99% organism removefrom thisprocess  Broiler chicksareheavier at 4th week of agein filtered hatcher than nonfiltered hatcher
  9. 9. D-Eggs Containing Embryos for Human Consumption  Balut or Embryo eggs  Stored in refrigerated  12th and 14th daysembryo eggs
  10. 10. E-AfterChicks hatch  Drying Chicks  Chick-holding room Temperature& Humidity  ChicksBox Sizes  Chicksbox Pads  Calculating thenumber of chickshatched  Hardening thechicks  Grading thechicks  Sexing thechicks  Extrachicks  Record thedata
