Investigating embryo deaths and hatching failureArtificial incubation and hand-rearing allow aviculturists to greatly increase the reproductive potential of breeding populations. When one clutch is pulled for artificial incubation, a second clutch will typically be laid, which can then be parent-reared or also pulled for artificial incubation, thereby doubling or tripling reproductive output....
Sexing of mid-incubation avian embryos as a management tool for zoological breeding programs…The ability to selectively incubate and hatch eggs of a desired sex represents a significant improvement in the long-term management of avian species. This study describes a successful method for in ovo sexing of embryos from stage 30 through 42 of incubation (Hamburger and Hamilton  J Morphol 88:49–92).…
