There is little known about the effect of vibration on developing embryos. The feasibility of developing an avian model to study this effect was established in this study. One hundred chicken eggs were divided into four trays of 25 each and exposed to vibration of 1 Hz .25 G, 5 Hz 3 G, 10 Hz 3 G, and a control of no vibration. Hatch rate was 0 percent for 5 Hz, 12 percent for 10 Hz, and 89 percent for the Hz eggs that did not crack during the incubation period. The control hatch rate was 84 percent.
