Abstract: This study was carried out to investigate the effects of storage and fumigation lengths on hatchability traits and hatching weight in Japanese quail eggs. A total of 315 eggs collected from 24 weeks old quail flock were used in the study. Eggs were allocated into three different groups for storage period (5, 10 and 15 days) and fumigation length (0 control, 20 and 40 min. It was determined that storage length has statistically significant effects on hatchability (p<0.01) and liveability (p<0.05) and hatchability and liveability were decreasing in longer storage periods.
