Effect of breed and age of hens on the yolk to albumen ratio in two different genetic stocks.
Significant differences were detected concerning egg components and quality measurements as assessed by albumen percentage (p = 0.02), yolk weight (p = 0.02), yolk percentage (p<0.01), yolk to albumen ratio (p<0.01) and yolk color (p = 0.01) between birds fed the unsupplemented moderate energy and high energy diets.
Although total egg weight was not significantly affected by energy level, the percentage of the egg weight that comprised the albumen and the yolk as well as yolk weight and yolk to albumen ratio was significantly lower for the unsupplemented moderate energy diet than the high energy diet.
