In two studies, changes in lipids and fatty acids from the yolk sac and liver of turkeys were determined during incubation and early postnatal growth. In Experiment 1, embryos were collected from Day 13 through 6 d posthatch. Embryos weighed 4.25 g at Day 13, 52.8 g at hatch (Day 28), and 104 g at 6 d. Total yolk lipid (grams per yolk sac) decreased from 9.48 g at Day 13 to 2.52 g at hatch (Day 28). Almost half (47%) of the yolk lipid decreased during the last week of incubation. In Experiment… CONTINUE READING
