Ecofriendly Method for Treatment of Hatching Eggs


The aim of this research is to study the influence of ozone on the efficiency of incubating quail eggs. The study had been conducted in the period from 2014 to 2018 under the SIE LLC “EcoDom”. In the course of the experiment the Estonian quail egg were served as an object of research. To carry out the experiment a household ozonizer ”Groza” was used. The Eggs of the first “control” group were disinfected with formaldehyde vapors according to the standard method – 35 ml of 37 % formalin solution + 20 ml of tap water + 20 g of potassium permanganate per 1 cubic metre of volume in a special chamber. The other three groups were ozonized. The eggs of the 2nd experimental group were treated for 10 minutes exposure time, the third – 20 minutes and the fourth – 30 minutes, the ozone concentration in all experimental groups was the same and was 10 mg/m3. After treatment, the eggs were placed for brooding. Biochemical parameters of blood serum were determined by the analyzer ”Microlab-300”. Ozonation of hatching eggs contributes to increase crude protein in the quail’s blood serum by 9.37, 9.65 and 8.57 % compared to the control group. Hatching conditional quails was increased by 43.35 % in comparison with the control group.
