Figure 1

Effect of maternal dietary Zn on Zn concentration in (a) egg yolk, (b) fertility, (c) hatchability, and (d) embryonic mortality. The Zn content in egg yolk was measured on a fresh basis. All values are expressed as . Means with different letters (a and b) differ significantly (). Mean represented the average value of 6 replicates (). MZD: maternal Zn-deficient group (0 mg Zn/kg diet); MZA: maternal Zn-adequate group (60 mg Zn/kg diet); MZH: maternal Zn-high group (120 mg Zn/kg diet).
