This facility provides incubation, brooding, breeding and data processing facilities for Japanese quail and chickens. The building consists of an office, a laboratory, a hatchery, a feed processing room and workshop , three cage rooms for pedigree breeding, four floor-pen rooms, and an equipment cleaning room. The animal rooms are computerized, serviced by an automatic barn-cleaning system and outside bulk-feed storage silos.
