IT is known that chicken embryos show great variation in their rate of development. This is due to three main factors: variations in the latent period, variations in the environmental factors of incubation and the inherent variations of the embryos themselves1,2. Some, or possibly all, of these factors are likely to occur under natural conditions within a single clutch of eggs, and particularly in species which incubate large clutches.
