The detection of hatching information of breeding eggs is of great significance for improving the quality of hatching,rational use of breeding egg resources,and improving efficiency of hatching. At present,application of the detection of hatching information of breeding egg is backward in China due to the high labor intensity,the low degree of automation,and the serious waste of poultry egg resources. It is urgent to strengthen the study and innovation of nondestructive detection technology of hatching information of breeding egg to ensure the quality of hatching,realize the breeding of male and female separately,protect animal welfare,improve the benefits of the enterprises,and promote the healthy development of the laying hen breeding industry. The emerging technologies and progress of detecting hatching information of breeding egg at home and abroad during the last decade were summarized mainly from three aspects including fertilization test before hatching,viability detection and sex identification during hatching of breeding eggs from domestic chicken. The problems to be solved and prospects of development are pointed out to provide a comprehensive reference for the nondestructive detection of hatching information of breeding eggs.
