The use of egg weight and chick weight coefficients of variation as quality indicators in hatchery management


Journal of Applied Poultry Research 2(3): 227-231
The use of egg weight and chick weight coefficients of variation as quality indicators in hatchery management
The use of coefficients of variation (CV) for egg weight at setting and chick weight as potential indicators of quality control for hatcheries and breeder flocks has been suggested. The feasibility of using CVs was tested in studies with chicken and bobwhite quail eggs under normal conditions or with changes in strain and air flow during incubation in the bobwhite.
