Abstract: Embryonic growth and development is influenced by both endogenous and exogenous factors. The purpose of this review is to discuss the critical stages of chick embryonic development in relation to functional maturation of numerous organ systems, the acquisition of thermoregulation, and the hatching process. In addition, the mechanism of hatching, including sound synchronization and hormonal and environmental stimulation, will be discussed. Finally, the importance of effective hatching synchronization mechanisms will also be highlighted.
