The primary factor that affects incubation time is the type of setter used with its temperature but incubation time depends also on age and size of the eggs and on temperature of the storage room.The incubation lenght of Pekin duck was studied according to a factorial experimental design, in relationship to storage time (3,7 and 14 days), storage temperature (18+/-1°C and 15+/- 1°C) and egg size. The experiment involved colection of 1,206 eggs. Results showed that storage from 3, through 7, to 14 days significantly prolonged the incubation time. The size of the eggs also significantly influenced the incubation time.

Abstract

The primary factor that affects incubation time is the type of setter used with its temperature but incubation time depends also on age and size of the eggs and on temperature of the storage room.The incubation lenght of Pekin duck was studied according to a factorial experimental design, in relationship to storage time (3,7 and 14 days), storage temperature (18+/-1°C and 15+/- 1°C) and egg size. The experiment involved colection of 1,206 eggs. Results showed that storage from 3, through 7, to 14 days significantly prolonged the incubation time. The size of the eggs also significantly influenced the incubation time.
