We addressed the relationship between the thyroid status of hens and the thyroid hormone content of their eggs, as well as the influences of egg hormones on embryonic development. Methods for measuring thyroid hormones in egg yolk were verified by demonstrating consistency in the recovery of yolk thyroid hormones following a methanol/chloroform extraction and in the measurement of thyroid hormones by RIA for a range of hormone concentrations in yolk extracts. Untreated hens produced eggs with… CONTINUE READING
