Abstract

Transport conditions and mortalities of day-old breeding chicks associated with eight shipments from central Iowa to Asia were delineated. The chicks were shipped in commercial cardboard shipping containers with the dimensions of 61 L ¥ 46 W ¥ 18 H cm and 88 chicks/container. The chicks were delivered by bus from the hatchery to the originating airports and from the receiving airports to the destination farms. During air transport, the chicks were situated in the cargo compartment of commercial passenger aircrafts.
