A hyperspectral imaging system and a predictive modeling technique was evaluated for determining fertility and early embryo development of broiler chicken hatching eggs. Twenty-four broiler eggs were collected (12 fertile, 12 infertile) for each of 8 replicate trials (n = 192) and imaged on Days 0, 1, 2 and 3 of incubation for training and model validation. Three replications of 30 eggs each (fertile and infertile eggs randomly mixed) were collected and imaged as above for model verification (n… CONTINUE READING
