Abstract:
A study was carried at Department of Poultry Science, Veterinary College, Bengaluru, to evaluate the egg parameters of indigenous chicken of Gulbarga division of Karnataka state under field conditions for external and internal egg quality traits. Evaluation of the external and internal quality of eggs is important because of consumer preferences for better quality eggs. The external egg quality traits studied were egg shell color, egg weight and shape index. The internal quality traits studied were albumin index, yolk index, shell weight and Haugh Unit Score. The percentage of different shell colors of eggs recorded under field conditions were 14.99 creamy, 38.64 light brown and 46.37 brown color. The average Egg weight, Shell weight, Shape index, Albumin index, Haugh Unit score and Yolk index recorded were 38.83±1.37g, 3.86±0.27g, 71.34±1.23, 0.064±0.010, 68.89±1.24 and 0.381±0.0045, respectively.
