O mém projektu
While the production of fertilized eggs is a continual process, the hatching is optimized with regard to the market demand for one-day-old chickens. For this reason, the fertilized eggs must be stored. This, however, has a negative impact on the hatchability of these eggs. The aim of this project is to optimize the conditions of pre-incubation for the maximum possible elimination of the negative impact of storing the fertilized eggs on the hatchability of chickens, depending on the age of the paternal flock. Thus, the aim is to determine the embryonic stage of development after laying the fertilized eggs and then after the pre-incubation application in different intervals for different times and while applying different temperatures.
