Time specific acid-base metabolic compensation and responses of hematological respiratory variables were measured in day 15 layer (Hyline) and broiler (Cornish Rock) chicken embryos during acute hypercapnic challenges (3, 6, 10 and 20% CO2). Control acid-base status and hematology differed between two strains. Broiler embryos were relatively respiratory acidotic and had higher hematocrit (Hct) and hemoglobin concentration. The partial metabolic compensation for respiratory acidosis produced by… CONTINUE READING
