Hendrix Genetics is one of 20 partners working together to study poultry stress in response to various environments, including the impact of housing systems and feed programs.

The goal of the project, named ChickenStress, is to provide information on the best welfare conditions for laying hens while maintaining optimum egg production.

An international team of 14 PhD students, under the supervision of global experts, will study how genetics, the rearing, and production environments impact chronic stress.

High quality genetic solutions

We never take our eye off the core of our business - breeding healthy, efficient laying hens that improve steadily with each generation. Over the past year, we have invested in projects that enhance our breeding programs for all species. By continuing to improve on what we do best, we can provide the market with sustainable, high quality genetic solutions.

Innovation is key

Innovation has been one of the key buzzwords of the past decade. The world of technology moves at a breakneck speed, and we aim to capture value for the layer sector wherever possible.
