Storage of Hatching Eggs

Effects Of Storage And Early Incubation Conditions On Egg Characteristics, Embryonic Development, Hatchability, And Chick Quality

Summary PhD thesis Inge Reijrink

It is well known that an increase in the storage duration increases the incubation duration, decreases hatchability, decreases chick quality on the day of hatching, decreases subsequent growth performance, and increases post-hatch mortality. Although the negative effects of prolonged egg storage are well known, the reasons for the negative effects of extended storage on hatchability and chick quality are not completely understood.
