Özet

The aim of this study was to determine the effects of short-term storage on hatching performance and the length of the incubation period of broiler breeder eggs. A total 3600 eggs from a 42-week-old commercial broiler breeder flock were stored for 0 hours, 6 hours, 3 days or 7 days and then placed in the same incubator.
