An area which we feel has been erroneously commented is that single stage incubation is a more expensive process - mostly due to an increas ...

An excellent and detailed examination - congratulations Dr. Nipane.
I would comment only that the careful management of male and female maturity during the rearing period will reduce many problems and ensure a successful production period. Males must be more mature than the females in order to avoid male rejection in the breeding house which results in the males losing their aggresiveness (socia ...
