The relationship of albumen height (AH) to the compositions of yolks and embryos in hatching eggs from a young (30 wk of age) broiler breeder flock was evaluated during incubation. On Day 2 of incubation, egg weight, yolk weight, and yolk moisture, lipid, and fatty acid contents were determined in eggs from broiler breeders previously identified as laying eggs of either low or high AH. In addition, egg weight, wet and dry embryo weight, and embryo moisture and protein contents were determined on Days 10, 12, and 16, and embryo lipid content was determined on Days 12 and 16. Yolk and embryo weights were expressed as percentages of sampled egg weight. Egg, yolk, and wet embryo weights, yolk moisture and lipid contents, and embryo moisture, protein, and lipid contents were not affected by AH; however, yolk myristic acid concentration was higher, and yolk linoleic acid concentration was lower, in low AH eggs on Day 2 of incubation. Furthermore, on Day 16, dry embryo weight was significantly higher in low AH eggs. Young breeder hens laying eggs of different AH may also produce egg yolks with different fatty acid compositions. Differences in yolk fatty acid profiles between AH groups during early incubation may impact subsequent embryo DM weight without associated effects on embryo moisture, protein, or lipid contents.
