“…As such the hatch body weight, early phase growth and feed intake of OBC were significantly higher than for YBC in the current study. These observations corroborated earlier studies that reported that older broiler breeders hatched bigger chicks ( PawŁowska and Sosnówka-Czajka, 2019 ) that grew faster compared to chicks from younger breeders ( Nangsuay et al, 2013 ). Larger eggs have proportionally heavier yolk.…”

“…With regard to economic aspects, the major goal of a hatchery is to obtain a high hatchability percentage while the production results are determined by chick quality and health. There is no question that chick quality is made up of many parameters, the objective evaluation of which may help choose chicks with the highest production potential [ 22 ]. Data from the literature suggest that in ovo injection may improve the weight of chicks at hatching, especially when carbohydrates are used [ 10 , 11 , 23 ].…”

“…Within the European Union, particularly Poland, chicken meat thrives industrially through poultry production, which as of 2021 had amounted to an excess of 2.9 million metric tons [ 1 , 2 ]. Besides the poultry production system in Poland delivering a promising product quality [ 3 ], factors that influence the chick quality would include the assessment of day-olds, broiler breeder nutrition, flock age, egg storage, and its incubation/post-hatching period(s), as well as in ovo-feeding [ 4 ]. The passion for healthy living across the globe is among the keys that drive the steady increase in poultry meat production.…”
