Özet

The effects of age and storage time on some interior and exterior egg properties in INRA geese were evaluated. For 1, 2 and 3 years old geese the mean values for fresh egg weight (without storage) were 144.2, 148.2 and 172.3 g (P < 0.001), for egg weight loss 2.37, 2.06 and 1.72% (P < 0.001), for shell weight 18.7, 18.4 and 20.1 g (P < 0.001), for shell ratio 13.3 12.7 and 11.9% (P < 0.001), for egg shell thickness 0.55, 0.51 and 0.51 nmm (P < 0.001), for shape index 68.0, 68.6 and 68.0%, for albumen weight 77.0, 80.4 and 96.7 g (P < 0.001), for albumen ratio 54.6, 55.3 and 57.1% (P < 0.001), for yolk weight 45.1, 46.6 and 52.5 g (P < 0.001), for yolk ratio 32.2, 32.0 and 31.1% (P < 0.01), respectively. The mean values for Haugh unit, albumen index and yolk index in freshly broken eggs (without storage) were 71.5, 8.29% and 36.8%, respectively.
