The present study was undertaken to: (1) develop a reliable method of measuring eggshell quality, (2) determine whether diet alterations that cause a somewhat reduced rate of egg production could influence shell quality, and (3) determine whether certain biochemical parameters involved in calcium metabolism are related to shell quality.
