• Dead-in-shell positions of near-term ostrich embryos 

      Brand, Z.; Cloete, S. W. P. (Schalk Willem Petrus van der Merwe); Malecki, I. A.; Brown, C. R. (South African Society for Animal Science, 2016-12-06)
      The patterns of embryonic development in ostriches, especially in the last stage of hatching, are still not well understood. This study examined between 3468 and 3484 dead-in-shell (DIS) eggs with chicks that died between ...
    • The effect of different combinations of dietary energy and protein on the composition of ostrich eggs 

      Brand, Z.; Brand, T. S.; Brown, C. R. (South African Society for Animal Science, 2003)
      Nutrition of breeding female birds can influence egg quality and is therefore extremely important for the development of the embryo and the successful hatching of a high quality chick. We investigated the effect of combining ...
    • Genetic parameters for ostrich incubation traits in South Africa 

      Brand, Z.; Cloete, S. W. P. (Schalk Willem Petrus van der Merwe); Malecki, I. A.; Brown, C. R. (South African Society for Animal Science, 2009)
      Data obtained from a pair-mated ostrich flock located at Oudtshoorn, South Africa, were used to estimate genetic parameters for egg weight (EWT), weight of day-old chicks (CWT), water loss to 21 (WL21) and 35 (WL35) days ...
