Abstract:
An experimental study was carried out in the indigenous chicken of Mysore Division (Hassan, Kodagu, Chikmagalur, Udupi, and Dakshina Kannada Districts) of Karnataka state reared under backyard conditions to evaluate the egg parameters. Evaluation of the external and internal quality of eggs is important to study the characterization of indigenous chicken. The external egg quality traits studied were an eggshell color, egg weight and shape index. The internal quality traits studied were albumin index, yolk index, shell weight, shell thickness and Haugh Unit Score. The percentage of different shell colors of eggs recorded under field conditions was 12.66 creamy, 35.77 light brown and 51.55 brown colour. The average Egg weight, Albumin index, Yolk index, Shell thickness, Shape index and Haugh Unit score recorded was 46.46±0.51, 0.052±0.00, 0.14±0.00, 0.32±0.00, 76.12±0.52 and 77.12±0.74, respectively. The average Fertility (%), Hatchability on TES and Hatchability on FES was 61.48, 46.90 and 76.29 respectively.
