Description

Experiment was designed to observe the losses associated with incubation in the upside down vs normal position. Upon hatch, chicks from control and experimental groups were evaluated for chick quality characteristics and hatch of fertile. Unhatched eggs were evaluated to determine live vs dead, age of death and embryo positions.
