ABSTRACT Study of the body weight, third-toe length, transversal and anteroposterior cranial diameters, brain weight and mortality of embryos of Gallus domesticus at 15 and 21 days of incubation showed that their exposure to electromagnetic fields of 10 ?T intensity and 30 Hz frequency accelerated their development and produced an increase in mortality at the end of incubation.
