Effects of housing systems and storage length on the quality of eggs produced from white and brown layer hens were studied. Egg samples were randomly collected from deep litter and free-range layer systems and stored in a none-air flow refrigerator for the periods of 1, 5, 8, 12, 16 and 20 days at 8 degrees C and 70-80% relative humidity.
