Controlled egg weight loss during incubation of turkey eggs

, : Controlled egg weight loss during incubation of turkey eggs. Poultry Science 66(3): 428-432

Weight loss (12%) of turkey eggs in a commercial incubator by a weekly adjustment of relative humidity (RH) was compared in four independent trials with the industry standard of maintaining 58% RH. Trials 1 and 2 were conducted with eggs from one flock of recycled hens during their 14th and 20th week of lay, respectively. Trials 3 and 4 were conducted with first cycle hens during their 3rd and 10th week of lay, respectively. Hatch of eggs was significantly better when eggs were incubated to lose an optimum amount of weight. Hatch of fertile eggs was significantly improved (P less than .05) in all except Trial 2. Hatchability was best when loss of egg weight was not greater than 11.5% at 25 days of incubation.

The trpR gene of Escherichia coli carries an open reading frame that encodes the trp repressor, 108 amino acids long. Here we show that translation of an additional (+1) reading frame of trpR occurs both in vivo and in vitro. This results in the s...
