A.S. Series 75-38
Thin or Improperly formed egg shells cause serious losses to our poultry Industry, and the problem becomes progressively greater during aging of the laying flock. Therefore, the Animal Science and Chemistry Departments are undertaking work to attempt to understand the causes for greater fragility of the eggs of older laying hens and to reduce the problem by removing or alleviating the causes. Since the work has just begun, no results are yet available. The studies to be under taken are outlined below.
