Effect of strain and pre-incubation storage period on the hatchability and embryonic mortality in Turkey


Author(s): Premavalli K and Omprakash AV

Abstract: A study was conducted to determine the effect of strain and pre-incubation storage period on the hatchability and embryonic mortality in turkey. A total of 1345 eggs of Beltsville Small White, Nandanam Turkey - 1 and Desi turkey at 38 weeks of age were stored at 15O-18 OC and 75% RH for 0-7 days. Optimum incubational conditions were maintained throughout the incubation period. The results revealed that the strain had a significant (P<0.05) influence on total hatchability, fertile hatchability and embryonic mortality in turkeys. The pre incubation storage period also had a significant (P<0.05) influence on total hatchability but not on fertile hatchability and embryonic mortality in turkeys. It can be concluded that Nandanam turkey- I showed better hatching performance than Beltsville Small White and Native turkeys and turkey hatching eggs could be stored up to 6 days at 150-180 C and 75% RH for obtaining good hatchability.
