Eggs

Eggs are an inexpensive and healthy source of protein. Both white and brown eggs contain 13 essential vitamins and minerals and nine essential amino acids. Consumption of eggs in the world is increasing due to a growing population and rising incomes. Market preferences in each region determine whether a producer will opt for the rearing of white or brown egg layers, as well as the size of eggs that the consumer requires.

Egg quality is defined by several parameters: shell strength and colour, yolk colour, internal quality, egg weight, etc. In addition to selecting the right breed for a top quality egg, it can also be controlled by nutrition and other management techniques.
