Nur Athilah Aziz (2018) The effect of two different breeds of quail on hatchability. Final Year Project thesis, Universiti Malaysia Kelantan. (Submitted)


This study was aimed to examine the effect of two different breed of quail, cortunix Japonica (Japanese quail) and cortunix English (White quail) related to hatchability and day-old weight of quail under the same hatching management by placing different groups of egg weight in incubator which are; 9.50-10.00g, 10.51-11.50g, and 11.51-12.50g. Eighty one of Japanese quail and eighty one of White quail were used to determine the rate of hatchability and day-old weight of quail for each breed. The egg weight of each group was collected and recorded. The research goal is to determine the better breed of quail on hatchability and day-old quail on body weight. Incubation temperature and humidity was set according to routine procedure for hatching of quail eggs such as 37.50C, 65-70% of humidity, good ventilation and turning the eggs 450 twice every day at the constant times in incubator machine. From the data revealed that both breed of quail affect significantly on hatchability % and dead embryo % but not on body weight of day-old quail (DOQ). The two different breed of quail do not significantly affect statistically on body weight of day-old quail (DOQ).
