Relationship between shell porosity, shell thickness, egg weight loss, and embryonic development in Japanese quail eggs.


Japanese quail eggs that hatched (H) or pipped (PIP) exhibited less weight loss through 15 d of incubation than did eggs that died late (LD), whereas eggs containing early dead (ED) embryos exhibited the greatest weight loss. The pore concentration at the large end of each egg was greatest in H eggs when compared with all other types. The pore concentration… (More)
