Even overfeeding adult birds as little as 10%, can lead to increase in multiple ovulations. Apart from there being a net loss of settable eggs, any normal eggs that are produced often appear at unusual times of the day because of erratic times of ovulation. An early Reproduction 29 warning sign of overfeeding, apart from the obvious associated increase in body weight, is increase in egg laying between 15:00-6:00h. These eggs often appear as floor eggs if nests are closed at night. Multiple ovulation can also cause more shell defects.

There have been reports of molting roosters together with the hens. With separate male feeding systems, however, a very limited feed supply (20-30g immediately after the feed withdrawal period) means greater than usual competition at the feeders. For both hens and roosters, the longer the period of molt or non-production, the better the second cycle and 6-8 weeks seems ideal. During a second cycle, peak production of 75% is possible, although the major management concern is sustaining post-peak production and limiting the increase in egg size.

The germinal disc is still quite distinct and small. With embryos dying very young, the germinal disc will be larger in diameter and there will not be a distinct raised disc per se.

Eggs can be examined after chicks have been taken from the hatch trays to determine general age of embryo mortality.
