Effects of Age and Management System on Egg Quality Traits of Fulani Ecotype Hens

The study was carried out to determine the effect of age and management system on egg quality traits of Fulani ecotype hens. Egg quality traits were measured at 20, 22 and 24 weeks of age from 45 Fulani ecotype hens reared in the cage and deep litter system of management. However, 50 to 70 eggs were utilized at different ages. Data were collected on Egg weight (EW), Egg length (EL), Egg width (EWD), Shell weight (SW), Shell thickness (ST), Yolk weight (YW), Yolk width (YWD), Yolk height (YH), Albumen length (AL), Albumen width (AWD), Albumen weight (AW), Albumen height (AH), Yolk index (YI), Albumen index (AI) and Haugh unit (HU); analysed for fixed effect of age and fixed effect of management system.
