The‭ ‬‮ ‬chicken industry grows two different breeds‭:‬

1‭.‬ The broilers which are optimized to provide as much meat as possible‭. ‬‮ ‬

2. The layers which are optimized to lay as many eggs as possible‭.‬‬


In ‬modern-day poultry farming, ‬the layer males are useless:‬

They cannot grow up to lay eggs, ‬and they are not the fast-growing breeds

that are sold as poultry‭.‬


So every year, the layer chicken industry disposes of 4 billion day old male chicks.

This practice is not only ugly, but also very expensive.


our solution

eggXYt‮ ‬‭‬is developing‮ ‬the ULTRASOUND for eggs

 We are building eggXYt, a global leader in revolutionizing hatcheries and making them a better place.

We do this by developing a technology that enables sex detection of chick embryos immediately after the eggs are laid and before they enter the 21 day incubation process.




We are saving the lives of over 4,000,000,000 chicks a year by preventing their unnecessary incubation.


We are saving the industry hundreds of millions of

dollars annually by not needing to waste half of their hatching capacity in order to pay people at the end of the hatchery line to identify and kill male chicks.


We are adding over 4,000,000,000 eggs a year to the global food supply by sending the non-incubated male eggs to the food market.



We take pride in addressing 3 of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.


By reducing costs of production, eggXYt is safeguarding a major source of high-quality protein.


eggXYt transforms what today is waste in the egg production value chain, into usable eggs to be sold in global markets.


eggXYt reduces incubation by 50%, slashing electricity usage, transportation, and waste disposal by hatcheries.
