Vitamin D-deficient chicken embryos were obtained by feeding laying hens diets in which 3–7 μg calcitriol replaced the vitamin D3 supplement. A large proportion of the D-deficient embryos failed to complete the prehatching positional changes required to start pulmonary respiration. For this reason most of them became cyanotic and had subcutaneous edema and hemorrhages in the head and neck and died without hatching. Total as well as leg-bone and muscle weights were significantly lower in the… CONTINUE READING
