Hy-Line UK leads the way in the production and distribution of day-old chicks to British egg producers. 2015 marked the 20th anniversary of Hy-Line UK, which was established as a subsidiary of our US parent company, Hy-Line International.
Opened in 2000, our Millennium Hatchery is at the forefront of modern hatchery technology and is the largest commercial hatchery in Europe. Our continued investments in the most advanced equipment, has meant that our breeds have the lowest carbon footprint of any birds available.
Hy-Line International recently held its first European Technical School in Warwickshire at the home of the Millennium Hatchery. Every two years Hy-Line hosts an International Technical School at its HQ in Iowa, USA, and the intention is to have the European event on a more regular basis.
Introduced last year by Hy-Line UK in response to the market demand for larger eggs, the company's Brown Plus strain of layer appears to be living up to its reputation.Read More
