Compounds That Potentiate Early Growth

In other species, peptide YY has demonstrated effects of inhibiting gut motility and stimulating small intestinal absorption of glucose. Application of peptide YY in ovo at transfer improves body weight up to 3 days of age in the poult. Administration of nutrients into the amnion of the egg prior to when the poult imbibes the remaining amniotic fluid before hatching has positive effects on intestinal maturation and poult growth after hatch.
