  • Broiler hatching eggs from two young (30 and 31 wk) or two old (52 and 53 wk) breeder flocks were stored for 3, 7, or 14 d at 18 C and 75% RH while being turned 0, 4, or 24 times per day in two experiments. [...] Key Result Apparent fertility and hatchability of total eggs differed with flock age in both experiments, but the effect was greater in Experiment 1.Expand Abstract
