The Tibot Spoutnic Encourages Hens to Lay Eggs in Their Nests

 - Apr 18, 2019
Training hens to lay eggs in their nests proves to be a challenging task for farmers, which is why the Tibot Spoutnic is offering such a valuable service.

Untrained chickens may lay eggs wherever the see fit, leaving farm workers to collect, which poses both sanitary issues as well as inefficient production. The robotic chicken coop worker operates by scanning the barn, prompting the animals to move around and lay eggs in nests, rather than on the floor. The Tibot Spoutnic works around the clock, helping to instill better habits into the hens by encouraging them to move toward their nests.

With this device, farmers can spend less time monitoring the barn floor, increasing production without interfering with the animals' wellbeing.
