It is a well-known fact that the incubation period for the turkey is seven days longer than that of the chicken. A comparative study is being made to ascertain in what respects the embryonic development of the turkey differs from that of the chicken. Observations show that the course of development runs slower in the turkey from the onset of incubation. The turkey embryo lags approximately 24-hours behind the chicken at the stage of closure of the amnion.
