The objectives of this study were:
1. To determine the effects of feeding 13 percent protein diets, with varying energy levels, to Single Comb White Leghorn pullets, upon certain egg quality characteristics, hatchability, chick growth and mortality.
2. To determine the effect of egg size on hatching, two, and four-week body weights of Single Comb Leghorn chicks hatched from the eggs of pullets fed 13 percent protein diets with varying energy levels.
