The aim of the study presented in this paper was to compare the reproductive qualities of laying hens of the parent flock of the ROSS 308 cross when using manual and automatic egg collection. The experimental part was carried out in the production conditions of a separate subdivision “Novosafonovskaya poultry farm” of Kuzbass Broiler LLC on laying hens of the parent flock of the ROSS 308 cross at the age of 155-435 days. The use of automatic nests for collecting hatching eggs did not affect the intensity of egg production, but contributed to an increase in the yield of hatching eggs due to a decrease in the culled eggs because of egg contamination, breakage, cracked shell and others. A decrease in the number of cleaned eggs among the hatching eggs contributed to an increase in the hatching of chicks and, as a consequence, an increase in the yield of day old chicks per initial layer by 11.9 heads or 8.5%.
