Numerous investigations(Bethke and Kennard, 1928); (McFarlane, Fulmer, and Jukes, 1930); (Titus, Byerly, and Ellis, 1933)6 have indicated a factor or factors required for hatchability other than the fatsoluble vitamins. The factor or factors seemed associated with some protein concentrates and with such feedstuffs as alfalfa, milk, liver, yeast, and fresh greens. Later work (Halpin, Holmes, and Hart, 1933); (Bethke, Record, and Kennard, 1933); (Heiman, 1935) indicated that vitamin G was the factor responsible. It is now known (Birch, György, and Harris, 1935) that the term “vitamin G” as previously used in the literature covered the complex action of several vitamins. (Bethke, Record, and Kennard (1936)) have suggested that riboflavin was the active factor responsible for increased hatchability. On the other hand, (Smith and Branion (1936)) have expressed the opinion that more than one factor in the vitamin-G complex7 is involved in hatchability of eggs.
