Egg & Bird Handling

Egg handling plays a very important role in any breeder management system. While layer houses require more complex egg collection systems, broiler breeder egg handling is done more simply. Eggs are transferred from the nests and out of the breeder barn on woven or plastic egg belts, and then are either manually packed or transported to an automatic packing machine. Big Dutchman offers solutions to meet both of these needs, as well as solutions for bird handling. Click to read more about each product below:


This versatile and durable table collection system is best suited for broiler breeder houses with manual packing. EggSort is ideal for gentle egg collection because it features no transfer points.


The EggTrax system ensures a safe and smooth transfer of eggs to their next destination for packing. It features anti-crack fingers and optional adjustable wire threads for maximum quality control.


Heidy is a mobile grader that helps increase the uniformity of broiler breeder pullets. Up to 850 birds can be weighed per hour, and two or three-way sorting is possible. The system is compact in design and made of high-quality materials for easy maintenance and cleaning, and its low overall weight makes it easy to move.
