Watch on-demand now to learn new techniques for controlling embryonic growth.
Incubation period variation is related to the growth rate of the embryos that differs between batches of eggs. Flock age and egg storage are the few parameters that influence embryonic growth rate and, thus, hatching duration. New techniques will allow greater control over embryonic growth to influence uniformity. Other new developments that include increased roles for both ultrasound and micrometry egg shell analysis grading shell thickness by mass to influence the hatch window and day-old chick uniformity. This will assist in creating robust day-old chicks, better prepared to express their genetic potential from the moment of hatch.
