Abstract Suboptimal leg health, which can be observed in fast growing broiler chickens, is known to result in pain, stress and mortality, and consequently affects welfare and natural locomotion-related behaviours negatively. Incubation conditions, such as lighting, may stimulate bone development of the embryo and leg health in later life. Moreover, mineral variety and consequently mineral availability for the chicken could affect post-natal bone development, and might reduce locomotion-related problems and risk on injuries during depopulation, transportation and slaughtering. This study was designed to evaluate effects of green LED light during incubation and dietary mineral variety for both macro (Ca and P) and trace (Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, Se) minerals during the rearing period on tibia morphological, biophysical and mechanical characteristics in fast-growing broiler chickens at slaughter age.
