Chick Length And Organ Development
Dr. Roos Molenaar M.Sc. and Dr. Inge Reijrink M.Sc.
A study of the Research department of HatchTech showed a positive relation between chick length at day of hatch and chick weight at day 7. This suggests that a longer chick at day of hatch has a higher development and growth potential than a shorter chick. Furthermore, a longer compared to a shorter chick at hatch may have an improved organ development in later life. To investigate this hypothesis, a study was conducted by the research department of HatchTech.
