We investigated the influence of treatment of eggs by nanoaquachelates of selenium, germanium and their complexes on embryonic development of quails. To evaluate the results of the incubation studies at the 38th hour, 9th and 15th day, five eggs were taken from each incubation variant (3 variants, for 150 eggs). Positive effect on the embryonic development of quail of selenium nanoaquahelatae in a dose of 0.05 μg/kg, germanium – 5.0 μg/kg and their complexes were established. Treatment of quail eggs with nanoaquachelates increased the number of differentiated pairs of somites by 26.0 %. The growth and development of quail embryos increased by 23.6% following exposure to selenium nanoaquachelate, and under the influence of germanium in the dose of 5.0 μg/kg – by 28.0 %. The complex of nanoaquachelates contributed to an increase in the mass of embryos by 30.7 % compared with control. Thus, the obtained results indicate for the stimulating effect of selenium nanoacquachelatae on metabolic processes in quail embryos and their antioxidant protection. Germanium promotes immunoreactivity during the embryonic period of development of birds.

Keywords: quail; eggs; embryos; incubation; differentiated somites vapor; Selenium and Germanium nanoaquachelataes; a complex of nanoaquachelataes
