The effects of hatch month on egg production (a), fertility (b), and hatchability (c) EBV. Winter lay season is defined as January to May. Summer lay season is defined as July to November. Annual fluctuation in egg production EBV is 1.21% days with egg produced in the female line and 0.45% days with egg produced in the male line. Annual fluctuation of fertility is 0.33% in the female line and 0.64% in the male line. Annual fluctuation in hatchability EBV is 0.33% in the female line and 0.64% in the male line. Dashed lines represent the 95% confidence interval. Color version available in the online PDF.

The effects of hatch month on winter lay EBV and summer lay EBV for egg number (a), fertility (b), and hatchability (c). Annual fluctuations in the winter and summer lay egg production EBV were 1.49% days with egg produced and 1.72% days with egg produced, respectively, for the female line. Annual fluctuations in the winter and summer lay egg number EBV were 1.29% days with egg produced and 1.16% days with egg produced, respectively, for the male line. Annual fluctuations in fertility winter and summer lay EBV were 0.72 and 0.64%, respectively, for the female line. Annual fluctuations in fertility winter and summer lay EBV were 1.08 and 1.27%, respectively, for the male line. Annual fluctuations in the winter and summer lay EBV were 0.71 and 0.59%, respectively, for female line hatchability. Annual fluctuations in the winter and summer lay EBV were 1.39 and 1.27%, respectively, for the male line hatchability. Dashed lines represent the 95% confidence interval.
