It is important to be able to determine at an early stage of incubation if there are any problems with the incubators or alternatively, with the breeder flock. This makes the identification of time of death of embryos during the incubation period important. Results from our study showed that the relationship between the development of ostrich embryos and air cell volume at various stages of the artificial incubation process can be used as an additional tool by hatcheries to determine age of early embryonic mortalities.
